Less is More OLC challenge - geometric shapes - card 2

I decided to do a second card for the Less is More weekly challenge. This week we are making a one layer card (OLC) featuring geometric shapes.



For this card I wanted to go quite grungy and masculine. I used a Darkroom Door background stamp (DDBS006 Harlequin) inked up with Tsukineko Kaleidacolor Raised Rainbow Ink Dye Pad in Cappuccino Delight, and stamped it onto linen card stock using uneven pressure to get a faded, aged look.

I added two scored lines directly above the stamp using my Crafter's Companion The Big Score.

Finally I added the sentiment in the second-darkest colour from the same ink pad. It's from the Hero Arts Color Layering Orchid in a Pot stamp set.

If you want to join in with the weekly Less is More challenges, check out the blog.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. You hit grungy married with CAS right on the head Esther! Such an inspiration to us all - would not have thought grungy worked with CAS, but you proved that it does. Super card.
