Wheels


So the challenge on Less is More is Round and Round, hadn't a clue so I checked some of my boards on Pinterest and I saw this, when you go to the website the artist even shows you how she made it. I didn't have all the inkpads so I just used one and stamped it four times. Then I saw another card using the background stamps which I now hid with my image. By the time I was finished it was a bit too much for Less is More.


So I made this one, my friend Nikki was using the postcard stamp at the crop and I realised I had a similar stamp by Unity. The original ideal is that the wheels on my Memory Box bike go round and they do but its a bit fiddly but the intention is there. It looks better in real life but now I'm thinking maybe this is too much too.

These are so wonderful as always!
That stamping in graduated lessening inkyness is lovely. I like how you kept the card design to a masculine feel.

The second is so nice and crisp and clean. Love the look of this and that great black and white ribbon is so perfect on this.
