A Geometric One Layer card for 'Less Is More'
It's been a long time since I entered any challenge because I was making other kinds of cards for orders. This time of year can be less busy and I do like the odd challenge to keep my brain sharp. I hmmmd and haaad over this one 'what stamps do I have that fall into this category?' etc . I've ended up with Papertrey's Quilter's samplers (not having ever P'd and Q'd you'd wonder just why I ever bought this set) The larger square fitted in vertically three times (not perfectly spaced but there you are). It is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black. The top and bottom square inserts are stamped in Versalolour Cardinal - I find this to be the reddest red with no pink undertones. The sentiment is also Papertrey - needed to choose the right size to fit inside the middle square. The filling in of the squares and the roundels is worked in Dr Phil Martin's Spectralite Liquid Acrylic 18 carat gold 'ink' with a pointed pen nib (the sort one uses for copperplate calligraphy). In reality it gives a lovely sheen but this may not be visible on screen. To me the card then looked too bare, even for LIM, so I drew on lines in the red and black. I hope it fits the bill for the challenge this week.
