More “Less is More”

less is more bookmark card

I made another card for the Less is More “Use a stamp” challenge. I still had the pretty blue and wheat coloured chalk inks out so I made a bookmark shaped panel as the only decoration for this CAS card. I sponged the background then layered some text and frame images over the sponging before punching a hole and filling it with blue ribbon tied by a scrap of embroidery thread.

The Penny Black design team are playing along with the Less is More challenge all week so you will find inspiration on the blog each day.


Stamps: With Florish, Life’s Messages,  (PB)
Inks: Versamagic Wheat, Aegean Blue & Night Sky  (Tsukineko)
