Less is More Challenge - 26 February 2011

Well, the moral of tonight's posting is don't post when you are very tired and don't have too many blogs open at once as you end up putting the wrong title on the wrong post with the wrong links - yikes!!!!

This will be three weeks on the trot that I've entered this challenge.  6-12 months ago I would never have even entered as I wouldn't have had the confidence but a New Year brought some new things for me to try and to try some things out of my "comfort zone" I include taking part in this challenge one of these such things.  

This week for the Less is More Challenge the topic is three squares.  For my card I have used my Flowers and Friendship See D's stamp set for the three squares and also the sentiment.  I have stamped all the images and sentiment with Versafine Crimson Red.  I have highlighted areas of the flower and hearts with my Sakura Stardust clear pen for some sparkle.  The only embellishment used is one gem for the centre of the flower.  The sentiment I would normally have put in the centre but I have tried it at the top on this card - not sure whether I like it "all the way up there"!!!!

This card also fits the following challenges:

Pear Tree Designs - One Colour
Crazy 4 Challenge - Flowers on card
Simply Create - Power of flowers

Hi Again Kym,
I really like this card, but I think your query about the position of the sentiment would be resolved if you had a taller thinner card, therefore leaving a larger gap above the squares and then if the sentiment were placed as is, in the top left corner you would get the balance you need.

I have this set too!! I like the colour you've used on this card, and the sentiment is lovely.

HI Kym
Great to see you again, love the squares and the ink colour
I agree the position of the sentiment is kinda not right, but, not too bad
In this instance I think it may have worked better at the bottom, or as Chrissie where it is but on a tall card
Well done though, it;s super that everyone is really thinking. Another time, print the sentiment onto a small piece, just slightly bigger than the wording and hold it in various places, it may help you decide what's right!
