Less is More - use 3 stamps

I have before and after pics for you today, as I had a little mishap while making my card for Less is More and had to do a bit of a cover up!  This week Chrissie and Mandi would like to see a one-layer card using 3 stamps - no more and no less... I wasn't sure what I wanted to make but decided on a baby card using one of the sweet new images from Pink Gem Designs.

This is my before pic...


You might just be able to see an ink splodge next to the sentiment... It doesn't look too noticeable on the photo, but close up it's very obvious - to me anyway!

So here's my after pic...


I've included both because I'm not sure if the addition of the butterflies 'passes' as a one-layer card!

The image is from Pink Gem's Baby Set, rotated slightly in PagePlus so that it curved across the corner.  I've used a sakura clear stardust pen to 'colour' sections of the image and also the border stamp, which is from a Kelly Panacci set.  I also added some little dots of pink stickles in the flower centres but they don't show up very well.  The sentiment is Stampin' Up, butterflies cut with a Kars punch and I added some little Hobby House gems.  Cardstock is pale pink hammered, possibly from Papermill Direct but I'm not sure.

Rushing off to fit some commenting in now, hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

This is really pretty Lisa. I love it with or without the butterflies! I have a card that needs a smudge covered up. Needless to say I haven't got round to it yet!

This is simply adorable! Love all the details.

Chrissie said...

Your card is fab Lisa and I think that the butterflies come under the heading of minimal embellishments!
I love them for their ability to add glamour and cover splodges!
I feel exactly the same as you about slight blemishes... they have to go ... one way or another!
Thanks so much
Chrissie

Just gorgeous honey!

Katina said...

Gorgeous! Love how you've positioned the washing line. My cards with splodges always end up in the bin because even when I cover them up I know they're still there and it bugs me! Nutter, I know!
