Shadow Stamping

My latest card is a very simplistic style and only took a few minutes to achieve. The challenge at One Layer Wednesday this week is to use two image stamps, no embellishments or bling. Quite a tricky one for me but I was determined to have a go, and although I used a small card I'm not sure if the images should have been bigger as there is still a lot of white space. I think I may add a sentiment before I send this to anyone.




I used a Hero Arts Shadow Stamp and the grass is by Crafty Individuals.
I'm also entering this card in the following challenges

Less is More - One Layer (Tree or Flower but hoping a grass will qualify)
Totally Papercrafts - CAS
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes.

Thank you for looking and for all the lovely comments left last week.

ttfn,
Fiona x

  15. Grasses have flowers don't they? It'll do for me Fiona... in fact it will more than do... it's a fabulous card. I think the proportions work really well and I love the amount of white space you have left.
    Great OLC!
    Thanks for returning and see you next week for our theme challenge... but you'll have to wait until Saturday to find out what it is!

  18. Hi Fiona

    Finally found some time to catch up on your blog, giving my knees a rest from being on the floor in the porch painting.

    Another batch of lovely cards you have been making. The Valentines one were just the ticket and as always your choice of colours is great.
