Dandelion clocks

Nowadays, I don't panic half as much as I used to when it comes round to a one layer week at Less Is More, nor, it seems, do lots of other crafters because it's only day two if this week's challenge and already the gallery is bulging with wonderful artwork.

The theme for the one layer card this week is to use a stem, so I've chosen to use this dandelion clock stamp from Blade Rubber. I masked off a rectangle of the card and stamped it three times using Versamark ink, then rubbed light green chalks over the images, then overstamped in black so that the green images formed shadows.


I am sharing this with

Less is More - One layer - use a stalk
Fantasy Stampers - one layer

This is a lovely card Jane. I think chalks give such a lovely soft impression and tend to forget to use them much now. Barbxx
