Butterfly card

Good afternoon friends, freezing here today
but at least the sun is out. As it's Saturday
again I have another 'Less is More' card to
share with you.
The theme is a technique this week and....
  • Choose a solid stamp and a decorative one
  • Ink the solid stamp in a lightish colour and the
  •  decorative one in a deeper shade
  • Stamp the decorative one onto the solid one as in 'kissing'
  • Stamp the solid stamp onto the card!

This is what I came up with after a bit
of thinking. Well actually a lot of
thinking !......also a lot of trial efforts
ended up in the bin grrrrr.

Anyway come and have a closer look
and see what you think. I think this way
of stamping added a bit of texture rather
than just overstamping the image.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you
have planned ;)
