Less is More N° 135

Another challenge from the Less Is More team: this week it is stamping and watercolour. As usual, I have to ignore the beautiful creations from other people, and work on my own card. And I have actually produced one I really like!



The stamping isn’t very clear or precise – I still need to work on my technique! But I am pleased with the actual idea.


I used watercolours to paint the background, and then a sweet little set of stamps by Artemio, in Versacraft inks. The spots that you can see are little silver stars. I think I imagine the bird to be a nightingale, serenading the stars. The sentiment is (rather obviously, I fear!) hand written.


It’s not brilliantly executed, but I like it.

    A very sweet card and lovely design. My cards are never brilliantly executed…there’s always a smudge somewhere!

    That is so pretty and delicate – love it! And no, it is certainly not obvious that the sentiment is hand written – I would never have guessed!

    This is a very sweet card! I love how you have raised it up on the dark background – it really sets it off! Thank you for visiting me, and leaving a comment – it was nice to hear from you. I too, ignore everyone else’s entries – it would be too intimidating for me if I didn’t – they always seem so creatively excellent, so I just do my thing, and then check them out, which is a better way to challenge myself.
