Off the Edge

This week at less is More it's a One Layer challenge, with the theme "Off the Edge"

I always find the one layer challenges the hardest because there's nowhere to hide, no way to cover up mistakes. Which is why right now my recycling bin is bulging.... I don't know WHY I put up so much resistance to the idea of using my stamp positioner, as soon as I brought it into action everything started to go right!

I've gone "off the edge" twice really - once on the left by stamping the dragonfly off the edge of the card,  and on the right by stamping it within the card then cutting away the right hand 3 cm of card, cutting around the dragonfly's wing, then sponging a border of shades of blue on the inside to show through when the  card is closed.

  2. I use my stamp positioner.... a few Duplo blocks... but they work really well!
    This is simply terrific!
