"Less is More" Challenge

Onto week 4 over at the Less is More Challenge, and this week the required element is "3 squares".

I'm feeling more relaxed about the challenge this week, so I've gone for something a little bit different to what I normally do.

Here is my entry:



I stamped the house images and coloured with promarkers and a touch of distress ink. Punched out the 3 houses using a 2" square punch, mounted them onto Kraft card and added some faux stitching.  The wording is stamped directly onto the card base.

The photo doesn't pick it up but the middle house is popped up and I've added glossy accents to the windows.

House Stamp - Woodware 'Home Sweet Home'
Letter stamps - Studio G Alphabet
Versafine vintage sepia, promarkers, distress ink, white sakura pen.
Kraft card

I'm off now to have a look at the 100 or so ladies who have already entered!

Happy Crafting
