Less is More Challenge #319 - One Layer Card

The current challenge at Less Is More is

I'm a bit intimidated by one layer cards. I'm always so certain that I'm going to mess it up - you know, drop the stamp, fingerprint, smudge the imprint. I know, that I could just turn it into a multi-layer card and it's only paper. It still stresses me out. I'm working on that, though.

Here's my card

I'm just in love with Altenew's Floral Shadow stamp set. It's what I used, along with my MISTI. I inked up the stamp with one colour, stamped it and without moving the stamp, inked up part of the stamp with a complementary colour. Then, I re-positioned the stamp - restamped, twice more. The sentiment is from the same stamp set. 

Part of me wants to add something to the top of the card. I think that I just need to embrace the white space - do you agree?

  1. Definitely embrace the empty space! I love how it sets off those gorgeous colours of leaves and focuses the eye on them and the sentiment - very effective! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  2. This is gorgeous, the white space lets the leaves take centre stage. And I love the way you've two-tone stamped them, and then overstamped the sentiment. That's another Altenew set to add to my super long wishlist!
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x
