Less is More Week #358 – OLC Candles/Light

Bonjour !

Mon dieu, le temps passe trop vite et c’est déjà samedi ! Donc un nouveau défi chez Less is More et c’est la semaine de la fameuse carte sur une seule couche (One Layer Card) dont voici le thème…

Hello !

OMG, the time flies too fast and it’s already Saturday! So a new challenge at Less is More and this is the week of the famous One Layer Card and here is the theme …

… et je vous rappelle que notre sponsor pour le mois de Décembre est Happy Little Stampers.

… and I remind you that our sponsor for October is Happy Little Stampers.

Un bon gros rhume cette semaine m’a laissée KO donc je n’aurai que deux cartes à vous proposer.

A big cold this week let me knocked out so I will have only two cards to propose.

1/ Noël and its garland / Noël et ses guirlandes

Toujours dans l’esprit de Noël, j’ai illustré ce défi avec des lumières de toutes les couleurs, c’est exactement le type de guirlandes que nous avions chez mes parents quand nous étions petits !

Always in the spirit of Christmas, I illustrated this challenge with lights of all colours, it is exactly the type of garlands that we had at my parents when we were children!

J’ai tout simplement tamponné et embossé à chaud le sentiment et les guirlandes et je les ai colorées d’abord avec des encres Distress pour faire le halo (astuce reprise à mon équipière Trina, voir ICI) puis ensuite j’ai rajouté de la couleur avec des marqueurs. Un petit trait de crayon gel blanc pour montrer qu’elles brillent. C’est une carte simple et rapide à réaliser !

I simply stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and the garlands and I coloured them first with Distress inks to do the halo (trick taken from my dear teammate Trina, see HERE) then I added more colour with markers. A small line of white gel pencil to show that they shine. It’s a simple and fast card to do !

2/Meilleurs voeux

J’ai commencé par faire l’encadrement en embossage à froid avec une matrice carrée. Ensuite j’ai tamponné et embossé à chaud la couche de neige qui est sur le dossier du banc, puis je l’ai masquée pour pouvoir tamponner et embosser à chaud le banc et le réverbère.

I started by dry embossing the frame with a square die. Then I stamped and heat embossed the layer of snow on the bench back, next I masked it to be able to stamp the bench. I also stamped and heat embossed the street lamp.

J’ai ensuite fait l’éclairage avec de l’encre Distress jaune, je l’ai masqué avec un morceau de Post it. J’ai masqué la partie basse de la scène pour faire une petite butte de neige. Puis j’ai masqué le contour du cadre pour pouvoir faire le ciel avec des encres Distress.

Then I made the light with yellow Distress ink, I masked it with a bit of Post-it. I masked the bottom part of the scene to make a a small hillock of snow. Then I masked all around the frame to be able to make the sky with Distress inks.

Avec un pochoir et de la pâte à embosser, j’ai fait les flocons de neige et pour finir j’ai mis un peu de Wink of Stella sur la butte pour et la couche de neige du banc pour faire encore plus vrai.

With a stencil and embossing paste, I made the snowflakes and to finish I brushed a bit of Wink of Stella over the hillock and the layer of snow of the bench to make them even more real.

J’ai fini par tamponner et embosser à chaud le sentiment avec de la poudre argent.

I finished by stamping and heat embossing the sentiment with silver powder.

Personnellement j’aime beaucoup le résultat, même s’il y a beaucoup de manipulation à faire, une fois que l’on sait ce qu’on veut, ça va relativement vite.

Personally I really like the result, even if there is a lot of manipulation to do, once you know what you want, it goes relatively quickly.

Honoured and Happy to be the winner at CASology !
