Less is more

This is for Less is More week 4: recipe: three squares. How come such a simple card took me so long?

I can't tell you the number of times I faffed around with this little Magenta stamp! It is inked with dusty concord.

I then discovered I'd got an Anna Griffin 'Hello!' stamp that I thought would be just right, but when I tried using it with the dusty concord DI I couldn't get a good impression, so I had to resort to using vibrant violet stazon. By this time I'd managed to get the squares right, otherwise I would have stamped the squares with the stazon.

All that for such a 'less is more' card (and the photo isn't up to much - it does actually look better irl) - the purple surround is my stamping mat, not part of the card.

This is also for:

Res-Q 72
: boxes - use a square
If the shoe fits 68: let your purple shine!

DLO in Nicky's CJ

The month's go by quickly - it's time tomorrow to post the next CJ for the group on the BF forum and this time I had Nicky's to work on - 'view from my window'.

I used a snowy winter scene and a summery one, both taken from the window of my craft room. I used Laura Ashley contemporary papers because I have LA curtains in the same pattern as those I've used here. I pleated the paper and have only stuck it at the sides so that it can be lifted a bit to reveal a bit more of the photos.

I'm linking this for:
