At last a Less Is More Challenge entry ! :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you're all having a lovely weekend :-)As many of you know I have been busy with visitors over the summer months ,, still am ,, but I went and I hid in my cubby hole so I join in with the lovely Limettes over on the Less Is More Challenge !

This week Mandi and Chrissie have challenged us to make a one layered card entitled Seeing Double ie stamp 2 of something.





I had a few practices with various inks, distress and chalk and thought the Hero Arts ‘Hero Hue’s chalk inks worked well for me :-) The flower stamps and text are all from Hero Arts too. After stamping the flowers I brushed them with Perfect Pearls, lovely and shimmery IRL :-)





I am thinking of making several of these as a little gift for someone and would appreciate any constructive criticism before I make any more Smile

Thanks for looking, I hope I am able to join in every week from now on ,,,, summer is nearing the end and I will have more time to play and of course to pop around to visit my blog buddies more often xx

p.s ,, the theme over on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge is 'Cute as a Button' I didn't have time to make a DT card so I thought I would mention the theme here if anyone would like to join in :-)
