“Two for the….

….cant really say for the “price of one” as I didn’t have to purchase anything to create these cards and only needed a small amount of silicon to attach the recycled gems.
Less is More requires something shiny this week  …..handy as my daughter Katie has donated a lovely bag of broken jewellery to my ever growing stash of stuff to repurpose on my crafty projects (hoorah for cheap and poorly made fashion jewellery!!!!!!!), but I also wanted to continue experimenting with the wax paper image transfer technique I used last week…….
I have made a step by step tutorial in a separate post as  I am conscious that my posts are always a bit long winded.
Both cards were made with the same lovely free image from the Graphic Fairy, I created two cards one using the image directly printed onto the card and the second with the transfer technique to create a very different lookDSC_0037 (2)
For a shiny touch the “directly printed” card just needed a gem borrowed from an iron on motif,

…..and the vintage style card was finished with a piece cut from a broken bracelet, with a co-ordinating  insert…..and as it seemed quite a sophisticated image….I translated the greeting it into french (thank you Mr Google!!!) , which  also inspired me to join in with DYSU, they have a great theme of inspired by a Movie...this card made me think of the new french silent movie "The Artist" which I am really look forward to seeing
.......anyone seen it?.....did you like it????

This is such a fab idea. Two great cards - and will CASE them with your permission? I never have enough 'men' cards in my stash and am always fussing about putting too much on them - these are simple but gorgeous!

Hi Diane

Great card love that image - also love your image transfer too. I've read your Tut post below and will definitely have to give this a try - thanks also for the low down on freezer paper I hadn't a clue what that was on Pinterest, but now I know!

Thanks also for your lovely comment on my blog too.

Wow these are brilliant! Gorgeous image and so fitting to have one in French :) Thanks for joining us at DYSU this week :)

First of all these are just brilliant, I love the image and how you dressed them up with bling. The transfer method has given a brilliant shade of grey and I love the softness of that. Very clever cards for this weeks challenge and thanks for the tutorial below :0)
