Less is More Challenge

There's a new challenge for clean and simple cards out there.  It's called Less is More and the ladies who are hosting it are both awesome designers in this style.

Their first challenge is a colour challenge, use Pink, Black and White.

Again, the odd pieces on my table worked into a card for this challenge.  I stamped several of these flowers last week and they have been waiting for some watercolor.  I used some ink in the lid and a blender pen to give just a touch of ink to the rose.  I wasn't going to color it at all, but decided a hint of color would be good.

For the mat, I die cut 2 clearlits out of Basic Black and cut them each in half, one horizontally and one vertically.  You can see directions for doing this at Stamping 411

This was a really quick and easy card and definitely clean and simple.

Card Recipe
