3 Stamps...

Over on the Less is More Blog the challenge this week is...

Here we are again with your favourite of all our challenges... the wonderful 

This time we have the stipulation to
not four, not two... but 3!
Now I am getting better but I always find that One Layer cards are hard work.  Something always goes wrong & I have to start again.
This week was no exception.  I decided on my 3 stamps (that was the easy part) and started work...  I have used the Little Claire Designs stamps for both the owl & the branch, I stamped them first & coloured them using my ProMarkers.  The last thing to add was the sentiment - & I was not happy!!!!
It looked a bit to heavy (or blurred) and I did not like it - being a One Layer card I could not just stamp the sentiment again and stick it on top, so I started again!

Attempt 1
For attempt number 2 I used the same stamps but this time did not colour any of the image until I had stamped the sentiment.  This time I decided to use shades of Brown for the owl.
Attempt 2
Looking at both cards side by side I think that I may have been able to get away with the first attempt - It is just be being too picky.
What do you think???


  1. Cute card. Love the images you used!

  2. Super cute owl, he looks most at home on that branch
    Sweet card
    Thank you very much

  4. I think they both look ace Helen!
    I agree that the sentiment on a one layer card is always the trickiest!
    Thanks so much
