Less is More #279


This week at Less is More we are all about purple which is a colour that I love.  We are also lucky to have 2 fab sponsors for June - Dies to Die For and Stamplorations. 

I love Shery's stamps and stencils so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a good play....

I masked off the bottom part of the card and brushed some distress inks on the top third before inking through the dotty stencil (Bubble Dance) in a darker purple.  I simply stamped this funky sentiment from the fabulous Big Greetings set in dark grey.  A simple one layer card.

I went even more CAS on this design:

Here I just picked out a few of the circles from Bubble Dance and inked them in shades of purple with another of the sentiments from Big Greetings.  Lots of white space here!

A less CAS card featuring Stamplorations below:

I love the grungy style of some of Shery's designs and stamped the daisy border at the top and bottom of the card with some grungy elements to add interest.  The sentiment is from a sweet little set - Grateful Beyond Words.  I added some soft inking over the Lots of Dots stencil to add to the loose feel of the design.

I have just realised that these are all one layer cards :)  Head over to Less is More for lots more inspiration from the fab DT!


Thanks for stopping by,
