I've had a pack of butterfly shaped cards in my stash for years. They seemed like a good idea at the time..... but I've never been able to think of anything to do with them. So when I read that this week's Less is More challenge is a one layer card that hadn't to be square or rectangular, I thought they would be perfect.
But I still couldn't think of anything to do! Eventually I decided to stamp one with spots of different shapes and styles. To avoid placing errors, I used acrylic stamps, placing them face down on the card, and moved them around until they were where I wanted, then put the stamping block down over the whole arrangement to pick them up in situ.
The result - well, as so often happens when I make a one layer card, it leaves me with a feeling that is isn't quite there. Raising the centres of the spots or inking the edges of the card might help, but then it would be neither one layer nor CAS. I think I've learned a lot in the last year or so, since I started joining in these challenges, but I still have a long way to go!
I'm submitting this to
Less is More week 128 - one layer
Addicted to Stamps and More 53 - colours
and as everything I used was at least a year old, and the card MUCH older than that, Use it Tuesdays 59 - Birthdays
