Less is more week 6

Just a quickie today as I'm in full crafting mode and don't want to waste any precious time!

This is my entry for this week's Less Is More challenge - a one layer card, off the edge.


I've used a digital stamp from Digistamp Boutique. Have had my eye on these and this was the perfect excuse to buy them.  My printer has been a little temperamental though so there were quite a few false starts with the printing directly to card base technique.

I've coloured the image with chalks, and couldn't resist picking up the edges of the scalloped card blank with the pink chalk too, sorry Chrissie and Mandi!  I also added a little touch of crystal Stickles to the centres of the roses.

  13. Hi Lesley!
    What a very pretty card you've made! Ilove the way you've coloured it...how do you colour with chalks? I've never tried but I'd like to as I like the effect you've created.
    Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. If you're struggling to get the issue of CCMWYPC for the wedding image, I'd be happy to email it you...it was free anyway so I'm sure it's not digi-theft :)
