Dropping by today to share a card for the current challenge at Less is More. The brief is to create a One Layer Card with the theme Spots and Stripes.
I trawled through my stamp sets and I actually really enjoyed making this one and I'm really happy with the result.
I ended up using 4 different stamp sets to come up with this design! I wanted to use a spot stamp to create the petals of the flower but found nothing in my stash. Then I cast my eye over them once more and the stamp I used was actually from the Clearly Besotted Stamps 'Merry Little Christmas' stamp set and is actually a tiny spotted bauble. I was going to colour in the spots but decided to leave this card purely stamped (apart from the gem of course) and didn't want to introduce any other medium. I stamped the vase a second time on a post-it note and cut it out to create a mask before stamping the striped background.
