Less is More - I have just been intrigued by the challenge. I am entering the 4 little note-cards (4" X 4") cards and the second card as well in the Less is More. I wanted to try color on color too, so for myself, I made the second card.
On the small notecards, I took a beautiful Cherry Blossom image from Hero Arts Asian Elements CL228 and wiped distress inks Victorian Velvet and Frayed Burlap in various coverages of the inks and spray misted them, some wetter than others. I used small sentiments to tuck into the space below the largest stamp from Hero Arts Messages Everyday Sayings CL342 and an old birthday clear set - unknown number.
I used the same sets and colors on the second card, which I am very pleased with. It looks much better in real life, as they say.
