Less is More & Stamptacular Sunday Challenges

Well! here I am back again today because as I said in the previous post I have had a good day with my card making.

This next card I am entering into two challenges - on is the Less is More Challenge where there is a colour theme & the other is the Stamptacular Sunday where the theme is "Text Me".

Here is the colour swatch for the challenge at Less Is More, anything through cream, brown, black;

Here is the card I made

The card is a very pale cream  In a piece of folded copy paper, I created a torn irregular rectangle aperture. Through the aperture I stamped the flower spray twice with Versamark ink & embossed with clear EP. Then using shaving style brushes I coloured the card through the aperture with Adirondack inks starting with Latte, then Caramel & finally on the right side & bottom edge only I used Espresso. After brushing the Latte ink onto the card I used a tissue to remove the colour from the embossed image, which I then repeated when I used the Caramel ink.  I then stamped the image again this time with the Espresso ink, which I also used for the sentiment.  The little bow is in fine black ribbon.  I kept changing my mind about the bow, but finally decided I did want to have it on the card.

Having made the card I realised that the text on it qualified it for the Allsorts challenge too.

I am really pleased with this card & can see myself using this type of layout more often.

I am now off to link this post to the two challenges.  One again thank you for popping to take a look at my little blog - I hope you enjoyed your visit.  Please leave a comment & say hello.
