Less Is More One Layer Challenge - Sentiment Focus

I've been having a go at a challenge for the first time in ages - the Less Is More One Layer Challenge.

Inspired by Linda (Crafty Distraction), I dug out my tapestry stamps. I'm not very good at getting a clean result with them, as I tend to over-use them, but I'm quite pleased with this card. I cut a large stencil for the lettering, stamped with Card-io stamps, and used stickles on the flowers.

How wonderful to use the Tapestry stamps like this - I've only managed wreaths and backgrounds! Very effective card - love it!

Glad you felt inspired by my card! I would have never thought of "writing" with them! I love it! And the colours are sooo calming. Pretty card!

What a genius use of the tapestry stamps - I used mine this week but not so cleverly! Might have to "borrow" this technique ;-)
