Three squares 'Less is More' card ( week 4)




Here is my finished card, for the' Less is more '  challenge once again, hope you like it.I cut three squares from what I thought were the best coloured bits from the sheet below, (see there details of how I made it)......reminds me of swirling sea foam ! Then I stamped some script and swirls from stamps I have for a little interest on the end square using vintage sepia ink to keep it soft. The font is called Champignon Alt Swash ( thanks for the help Chrissie), computer generated of course. I am quite pleased with the end result now and may do more of these type of cards. Thankyou so much  Chrissie and Mandi, I am really thinking about trying out new ideas now. I may make the sentiment lower down next time and also the squares, you are so right when you leave suggestions for everyone too C&M so thanks again,we are all learning as we go I think.

  3. I know what you mean by the font looking like a lot of scribble in the font drop down box, but once selected, it should be type written in the small box at the top, next to the font size box!
    Those are yummy patterns on those squares, I bet you had fun doing those. They have made a lovely focus to the card.
    We're so pleased that you feel that you are picking up ideas as you go, it's just what we had envisaged for this blog and we are delighted!
    See you next time!

  13. This is a pretty card. Your watercolored squares are quite striking. I have used the watercolor and salt technique in art lessons with children but never thought to apply it to card-making. Brilliant!
