One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Less is More # 9

The great thing about challenges like LESS is MORE is you don't have the urge to fill up every white space with more "things" be it bling, pattern paper or stamping more of something...it is all about keeping it really clean.
Here is the sketch for this week's challenge:
 
I die cut a netabilities die and used the negative part of the die to mask off the shape and sponge on some yellow color for the background, then I stamped my flower and colored it in.
Paper:  PTI white
ink:  harvest gold, memento markers blues and greens, staz-on
vellum, gems
stamps:  Year of Flower Collection (PTI)

  4. A lovely CAS card Colleen. Inking through a Nestie aperture is one of my favourite techniques and you've done a fab job
