Good morning folks. Its the second Saturday of the month which means... the dreaded one layer challenge over at Less is More. I haven't participated in the last few as they were much too hard! This is much more up my street. I defy anyone not to like spots & stripes.
What's more, this design allowed me to test out my latest toy - a stamp press. I've seen this around & about for a while now & never really seen the need, but having taken part in the CAS card class recently, a whole new world of possibilities was opened up. It lets you position stamps so much more easily - you can get right up close to the paper before you commit & press down. Fab. As a result, I was able to complete this card without resorting to masking. I just used the lines on the stamp press to work out where on the stamp length the ink should stop. Much easier. Having said that, I did have very many..ahem.. trial runs. You'd think I'd have learned by now to clean off the whole stamp each time, but no.. However, very pleased with the final outcome.
