Less is More challenge....stripes


I didn't have alot of free time today, but I did manage to sneak into my craft cave and make this card for the challenge at less is more. This week it's a one layer using stripes, and I really had only one stamp with stripes, and that was a circle from SU's Pumpkin Patch.

I inked up one of my acrylic blocks with real red and it just didn't stamp well, so I switched my plans and used pixie pink. I inked up the striped circle with more pixie pink and stamped in the middle of the square, and added a tiny heart stamped in black in the center. It just need something more...so I placed a tiny pearl off to the side of the heart. I stamped the sentiment in black at the bottom.

I made 3 of these for friends...they were quick...and I love the clean and simple look!
