Today I'm here to share my card for the current challenge at Less is More where the theme is to 'Use Designer Paper in a CAS Way'.
I don't have a massive collection of patterned paper but what I do have I don't use nearly as much as I could. So, here is my first proper attempt at stamping on patterned paper.
I used the gerbera stamp and first stamped the bottom half in green onto some green patterned paper, then stamped the top half in burgundy onto some pink patterned paper. The stamp does have a co-ordinating die but I decided to fussy cut the images as I didn't want any white edging. I coloured the centre of the bloom with a ProMarker. I used a border die to give some interest to the base of the card and used the same die to cut some matching patterned paper which I used to ground the image. The stamped images were then adhered directly to the card base and a sentiment was stamped alongside it.

I wasn't sure I liked this card as it was evolving but I'm really pleased with the finished result. It made a nice change to try something new :)
That's all for now, I'll shortly be off to grab some ZZZs
