Less is More challenge 6: Off the EdgePosted: March 15, 2011
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?
