Better late than never...

Well, I finally managed to make a card for the latest Less is More challenge where the theme is Masking. I made a one layer card using post its to mask off a sun within a section of the card. I used Adirondack inks in mountain rose, denim and lake mist with my ink dusters. I then removed the masking and stamped with Inkylicious flower and sentiment stamps.
 I used a touch of white gel pen and some cotton candy stickles to add a bit of interest. I'd never made a card in this style before seeing one of Chrissie's nearly 15 months ago, here. I now make them very regularly - thanks, Chrissie for the inspiration. Thanks for looking and I hope to visit some of my fellow LIMettes after Karate tomorrow night.

  12. It's just stunning Sally and the stickles is a nice tough to highlight the flower stem.

    But you did take away a bit of my fun naming the colours - spoilsport !
