3 Squares: "Less Is More" blogspot challenge
This is a plain white 4x6 card base. I punched 3 1 1/2" squares from the same cardstock. I inked the squares with a direct-to-paper technique in the primary colors, and inked around them and the card with black ink, and affixed the squares to cardstock, using foam for the yellow square. Yellow square was stamped with sentiment. Its hard to see, but I scored two lines with my ScorPal underneath the yellow square, but then added black lines with a pen for more contrast.
Ink - Memento, Dandylion; Distress Inks in Broken China and Barn Door; ColorBox Black ink; Black Sharpie marker.
Card also good for Sketch Spotlight- STVSKSP15 on Stamp TV.
Here's one more that fits the LIM challenge. The stamps are from a very old "quilt" foam stamp set of coordinating sizes of squares, rectangles, and triangles. I just overstamped the squares with Distress Inks as mentioned, adding Spiced Marmalade to the mix. The sentiment is only half of the image (I masked off the other words), and is from Serendipity Stamps.
