Penny Black plays along with Less is MorePosted: August 31, 2013
The Penny Black design team is playing along with the “Less is More” challenge this week which is to ‘use a stamp’ with the added suggestion of using watercolour too.
To use a stamp is not too much if a stretch for the Penny Black designers! I decided to limit my stamped area in keeping with the less is more guidelines. I punched squares out of a post it note to create a three square layout through which I sponged chalk inks. I stamped images from the floral appliqué set in chalk inks also. I had intentionally spaced my squares further apart on the right so I could place the sentiment in between the two squares.
As I was enjoying working with the chalk inks I used the same mask on a portrait oriented card switching the plum ink for a couple of blue inks. The colour scheme reminds me of the beach.
