Less Is More ,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) I have just made this card for this week’s Less is More Challenge where Mandi and Chrissie are asking us to keep it simple with One Layer and to use Birds too ,,,, well after gettin me legs slapped last week I thought I had better stick to the rules this time ;-)

I have had this lovely Simon Says Stamp Why Do Birds Fall In Love Exclusives set for a while and never inked it so it was about time it had an outing !!



I masked off the central square of the card with post it notes and sprayed with Slate Glimmer Mist and left it to dry, looks lovely and shimmery IRL. I then inked the stamps with Versafine ink, added a tiny drop of star dust stickles to the heart and did some faux stitching around the image to add more definition.

It was really simple and was very quick to do ,, and even if I do say so meself I think this is OK and I think I have ticked the right boxes this week Smile Lots of white space and not an embellie in sight !! :-)

Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend and hope to pop around to see ya’ll later :-)

Less Is More ,,, One Layer and Birds

Bloggers ,,,, Wings and Things

I Brake For ,,,,,, CAS
