Less is More–a rainbow in the Garden

The ladies at Less Is More this week have challenged us to create a one layer card using stripes…. ‘eeekk’ I thought and after searching my stamps realised I would have to come up with something different ! So I used some torn sticky notes to  mask off some stripes and coloured the spaces with distress inks. A Tim Holtz stamp and a sentiment from Stamp Addicts in archival black over the top finished it off.

I’m wishing I had only stamped the flowers once now I look at it on here – but, well it’s done now, what do you think?

As well as LIM I'm sharing this at -

  3. Love your stripes Esther... I think I would agree that just one image of the flowers would have had a little more impact! It's a great card though!
    Thanks so much

  4. I like the 2nd generation stamping. It gives an ethereal feel to the picture and goes well with the text.
