The challenge over at LESS IS MORE for this week is ANYTHING GOES.  They’re trying to reach 1000 entries, so I thought I’d have a quick go.  Here’s my very simple offering.

The colours aren’t quite true and are lighter than they look, but I find it really difficult to get a good image of a card with lots of white space. The lines were dry embossed, then drawn with a matching Tombow pen, which is actually rust coloured.  Hey ho! No time for fiddling with colour in Photoshop right now :-)  It’s slightly textured because it’s stamped on linen card, but I like that effect.
See you soon!

Love the simplicity Cath and another great quote - you must have tons of word stamps tucked away.
