Less Is More Challenge- 3 stamps


Okay, this was waaay more challenging than I expected. The Less Is More challenge this week was to use 3 stamps.  Using only 3 stamps was difficult as a little voice inside of me kept saying “can’t I use just one more?”, though to tell the truth no matter how many stamps were allowed I probably would have wished I could use just one more!

It has been a while since I have used pigment inks.  I smudged several cards before I remembered that pigment inks dry slowly, and then I ruined the next card  by sliding my sentiment stamp out of place.  Only after making several cards (actually card fronts) did it occur to me to try erasing the ink smudge.  It worked!

It has also been a while since I have done masking, and I forgot how much I enjoyed it.  I used my new Tim Holtz Peacock Feather  Distress Ink for the background.  Pretty color, huh?
