Less is More Challenge

Hi Ladies
The Challenge this week on Less is More is a one layer card with three of anything, that could be three colours, three images, three stamps, three words, the number three. I do find one layer cards quite difficult as the whole focus is on the design and it's simplicity.
I decided to use one of my favourite stamps from the current SU catalogue - Simply Soft, this is one of the hostess sets so it will be disappearing within the next few months which is a shame because it is such a beautiful stamp.
Here is what I produced:
I divided the card up into sections by scoring boxes across the card. I then masked off each one in turn and sponged  Pool Party over each square before stamping it in Pacific Point. The sentiment was stamped in Pacific Point using the Apothecary Art stampset which is from the summer mini catalogue.
The scoring of the card is quite subtle and difficult to photograph effectively so here is a close up:
Materials used:
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Stampsets: Simply Soft, Apothecary Art
Ink pads: Pool Party, Pacific Point
Tools: Simply Scoreboard, dauber.

If you would like to order any of these materials to be able to make this card please contact me on:margaret@margaretjones.net

Please come back tomorrow when I will show you some of the projects that we did at a training day that I went to run by Jo Dumbleton in Wimborne.
