Simply less is more

It's a long time since I played along with a challenge at Less is more, but the sketch for today's challenge 186 

was just right to showcase a stamped chipboard square that I'd made this afternoon. I found up a piece of chipboard that I had previously coloured with Caran d'arche neocolor pastels that I had swiped and blended with a baby wipe to produce an ombre effect for Keep it simple 47: ombre.

I stamped the piece of chipboard with a favourite Magenta stamp that I haven't used for ages - inked with Stazon black.

This is also for:
