This is my entry to the latest less is more challenge, which is scraps. This card is made with a scrap of stamp board decorated with Brushos, visible image and wild asparagus stamps and fabric paper also made with scraps of paper.
I got some Brushos for my birthday and I have loved using them.This is a canvas which I have layered with paper scraps before painting with gesso and then I went a bit mental with Brushos. The images are stamp board which has been painted with Bushos and then stamped with visible image stamps which I always seem to end up using at the mo.
I also wanted to enter this challenge to make sure I said a BIG thank you to Laura who works at That's crafty and helped me get hold of the Tim Holtz crazy birds stamps. Laura was swift in her replies and was very polite to a rubber stamp obsessive who kept emailing her demanding updates.
