Less is More Challenge wk9

Happy Monday everyone - well l was supposed to have a hectic day with a review meeting for the boys at my house today which would have meant cleaning, food then meeting that would have taken up nearly all day. Came back from school run and meeting canceled - sooooooo l can play yippee.

I have been thinking about the less is more - touch of red since saturday and was unsure of which stamp to use until l saw this stamp which was a freebie in craft stamper some time ago on my desk. I have so may stamps l have never used and it is my intention to use them all this year.

I stamped onto card and coloured with copic pen then stamped again and cut out and placed on top then l added glossy accents to the middle and added some beads to centre. A couple of years ago l bought lots of beads and never used them - like you do lol. You will see them quite a bit on my cards as l like the effect they give. I stamped the image twice on skrink plastic and coloured with prisma pencils (copic was too dark), shrunk . Matted onto red card and sentiment from stamping up stamped in red ink.

Just showed this to my hubby and he loves it - not often l get a comment like that from him.

Hope you all enjoy the day and l will be back later to catch up, thanks for dropping by x Susan x

Hi Susan
that's a fabulous flower
i love your card too, if you don't; mind me saying I think if the sentiment was stamped in black it would balance the black in the flowers better, However, this is not a criticism, just ann observation!
Great job,
Thanks for your entry
