Humming birds and cherry blossoms




Season greetings,

Here is my entry to the Less is More Challenge - stamp layering.

I tried using a layered flower stamp and have learned that  I am rubbish at this form of stamping! I have ordered a Tim Holtz stamp platform in the hope that this will help and because they are cool. So anyway here is a masked card using the fabulous designs by Ryn -Humming bird, visible image stamps and a line stamp that is so old it keeps trying to tell me about the last ice age.

I am also entering this card into the Designs by Ryn - November customer creation challenge. 



I also made this very plain CAS card  for the That's Crafty challenge blog which has the challenge - Forever Floral. I love this quote from Monet (via Alison Bomber's paper artsy stamps.)

As it is cold and rather grey outside here is a photo I took of a hummingbird moth while I was on holiday, much to the great puzzlement of people sitting near me!

Layering stamps can be tricky, and a stamp positioner will definitely help. I have six and love them all. 😂 Both your cards are beautiful. Love the images you chose to layer on your hummingbird card. A great rustic look. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More.

Way to go evil Edna! You captured such a sense of fluttering movement with that fab humming bird stamp and the stamps behind it add so much depth. Cool sentiment stamp too. Yes, I agree that a stamp platform will help - I wouldn't be without mine now. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More xx
