Mothers Day Leafy Swirl

Hi Crafter's,

Here is a little card I made for the Less is more weekly challenge. It is week 6 and the brief this week is to make a one layer card with the main image off the edge of the card and no score lines.

One layer I can do, stamping off the edge of the card no problem........ BUT NO SCORE LINES....... Shock Horror I can't do that....... I love texture on my cards..... What am I going to do?????? LOL

For  this card I used a Clarity stamp, "Leafy Swirl"  I stamped it with distress ink "Worn Lipstick"
I repeated the stamp in a circle. at first I didn't think it was going to work and nearly threw it in the bin but luckily I told myself to finish it, and I'm glad I did. 
I stamped the small black circle in the middle with the rubber on the end of a pencil. I just finished off the card with a plain simple mothers day stamp, stamped in black.
And not one little bit of embossing any where, gosh that is soooooo alien to me.... LOL

Well I hope you like it. Thank you for stopping by to take a look. I'll see you again soon.

SYLVIA-ANNE said...

Love the clever way you have used this Clarity swirl stamp Sue - I thought at first glance that it was a circular image, but after reading your Post I just had to go and check it out on Barbara's website, and was amazed to find that it isn't a circle at all! The little black centre dot really makes the image "pop" - brilliant work!!
Thanks for visting my blog tonight ~ Hugs, Sylvia x
