How are we all doing? Feeling good?
It's Saturday again and that means it is time for another Less is More challenge.
This week we'd like to see you all Use 3 Stamps, no more; just 3 ;-)
The rest of my teamies have worked their usual magic and provided some amazing inspiration on the challenge site with even more on their personal blogs. Please do go over for a visit.
Here are my pieces of DT inspiration. I thought for my first card I would do some repeat stamping and a bit of brayering.
Stamps: Clarity Stamp Lone Spruce
Clarity Stamp Pine Forest
The sky was brayered in Broken China, Stormy Sky & Hickory smoke DIs with a moon mask in place. The Pine Forest stamp was repeat stamped in Lettuce, Meadow and Bottle Adirondack. The Lone Spruce was stamped in Bottle Adirondack with the panel in place then the sentiment added underneath.
An Inkssentials opaque white pen was used to create stars, and what I thought would be moonlight highlights (but actually look a bit like snow now it's finished!) then the panel was raised on 3d foam pads

The next card uses a stamp set I picked up in the UK on my trip over at Easter.
Stamps Used: Craft Asylum - Into the woods. The bare branch, the large owl & the sentiment
First, the owl was stamped into position In Rust Adirondak. A wink of Stella was added for a little shimmer.Then the tiny bare branch was repeat stamped multiple times in Mushroom Adirondack to provide a perch. The sentiment was stamped in Ginger Adirondak. On the repeat stamped branches I added random drops of Liquid Pearls in Mint and Cosmic Shimmer Vintage Pink Pearlescent PVA glue to represent leaves and blossom.

Another spring card has been created for my third piece of inspiration.
Stamps used: Penny Black Allegro (two different flowers), and See D's Springtime Swirls Kit #50501 for the sentiment.
This was simply made by stamping on white card using distress markers in Mustard Seed, Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Mowed Lawn and Lucky Clover on the flower stamps. The flowers were cut out and raised onto 3d foam pads and the sentiment was stamped directly onto the base card. Entering this into Card Mania - Spring
I had to do a really quick sunshiny final card! Stamps used: Clarity Stamps Gerberas and Papertrey Ink Sentiment
The sentiment and flowers were inked in Terra Cotta Adirondack and then the flowers were coloured with Spiced Marmalade and Mustard Seed Distress Markers and a Wink of Stella added for sparkle.
