Here I am nipping into the Less is More challenge at the last minute again. One day I'll get there early. 
The challenge this week is to Include a Stem. Should not be too difficult but it must also be one layer.

We'd love you to display our banner

I confess this is the second card as I stamped the green at the top on the first one and then realised it would be better the other way around. I used ink on an acrylic block, ink and water spray for this.

I wanted to use this Kanban stamp which is one of the first ones I bought but have rarely used successfully. It is tricky to stamp as it is so intricate and you need to ink carefully and use a flexible acrylic block. Even here, trying very hard, I missed one petal! Grr.
Then I made an error of judgement and carried on when I should have stopped. Always the case with me. Finished up with blobs by the greeting so added some gems, which I had not really intended to do. 
I must get me a splatter/splodge stamp. I am not brave enough to splatter ink direct. 
Anyway, here it is. I hope you like it.

  5. Lovely soft, feminine colours Alison. Gems and sequins are marvellous to hide little errors, aren't they, I use 'em a lot!
