An Oriental Recipe

Week 30 over at the Less is More Challenge and this week it's a recipe ...


Take 3 Challenges
We want you to choose 3 from any of our previous 29 and combine them in your design.


I've been very good and have used a scrap which I had left over from yesterday when I was playing about with inks and my new Geisha stamp.

This is the scrap piece ...


and the finished card ...



I've incorporated:
Week 4 - 3 Squares
Week 12 - Off Centre
Week 28 - Ink
(it would also fit with a couple more weeks)

Background was made with Distress Inks and Geisha stamp is by Bravura.

Apologies for not getting round to visiting many of you last week - it was just one of those weeks!

Thanks for popping by - have a great week everyone and thanks again Chrissie & Mandi for a great challenge.
