Less is More Challenge

Hi All

Having only just posted a few minutes ago I have just realised that one of the cards that I made for Wednesdays card class would also be suitable for the challenge over at Less is More where the theme this week is for animals.


This is a very simple card which uses the technique of masking and sponging to create a card which has a very soft feel.

Using paper I made a template which had a square aperture in it. I attached the template to my white Cardstock and using a sponge lightly dabbed and built up colour first using Crushed Curry ink and the very lightly used Basic Grey around the edges. 
Using a Stamp-a-majig for alignment I stamped the birds in Basic Black and then finally the sentiment, again using the Stamp-a-majig for precision positioning.

Hope that you like the effect.

Until next time.
