Foliage


Not too sure about these now, I think they need toning down but I so wanted to join in with this weeks Less is More challenge. This clear foliage stamp set from Stampendous was probably one of the first even clings I ever brought so they about 13years old and I notice they are going a bit soft but they seem to still stamp well.
The fabulous sentiment is from Simon Says stamp is called Floral Bookmarking. The butterfly was never in the plan but the bit of ink on my finger managed to transfer itself on the finished card.


Not sure if this was one colour too far and still not convince this is a bit of a mess and I've checked the card again to make sure the sentiment is straight and it is so how it can be crooked I don't know.

Hmm sentiment looks fine in the main pic, maybe it's an illusion from the angle of the leaves?
Either way the autumn colours really work for me Debby, super one layer
Thanks so much for joining us at Less is More

Gorgeous cards Debby, such wonderful stamping and glorious colours - I love fabulous sentiment.
I'm glad I'm not the only one to get sentiments crooked and end up cutting a side of the card to straighten things up!!! I thought new specs would help better - no!!!

hugs
Heather xx
