Thursday Thoughts

Two cards for the Less is More challenge today.  Their theme is dark background with a splash of colour(s). Well selecting the black card was the easy bit! It took a few attempts before I came up with a way to make the colours show up on the black. I sort of knew how I wanted the card to look, but stamping wasn't doing it for me. So I searched out some vibrant papers and used dies and punches to layer up and made the first card.


I thought I was done but then I got to thinking about the rules at Less is More and began to wonder if three layers plus a button would be too much. So I pondered some more and then spotted my box of washi tape and that's how the second card was born.


 

Supplies:
Hearts: Nesting die (can't remember make), Martha Stewart punch & hand cut
Paper, washi tape, gems & button from my stash 

Thanks for dropping by today.
