Less is More challenge 6: Off the Edge

The challenge at Less is More this week is a One Layer Card which includes stamping off the edge.  I often stamp off the edge of my cards so you would think I could whip one of these out quickly.  Sadly it took three attempts before I had something I was happy with.  I have a growing pile of “blunders” that I have to turn into something attractive.

I masked with post-it notes leaving a long thin panel to stamp on.  Before sponging I stamped the leaf four times, some without reinking. Then I sponged in four colours and removed the masks.  I added the sentiment and three more leaves to complete the card.  Who knows why I am stamping fall colours just as spring is appearing?


Stamps: With Gratitude, Thoughts & Prayers (SU)
Inks: Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic Ivory
