Hi there! This week's challenge theme at Less is More is Congratulations - and there is nothing better to be congratulated on than a new baby, is there?
I have chosen a very soft colour palette, of SU Calypso Coral ink stamped off once, and Simon Says Stamp Fog for the elephant (Clearly Besotted 'Baby Shower'). I found this ink gave the best cover for this solid stamp. The die cut is also by SSS. The actual 'celebrate' word is from the SU set 'Celebrate Baby' but is now retired. I think when I decide to mask an area before stamping again, I'd make sure that I can fit more than one word and one letter in the space, as it appears a bit awkward when I have the word in the middle of the space. We live and learn though, and that's what is so good about entering challenges, isn't it?
As I was finishing the inside of my card, with a row of tiny elephants, I took another look at the soft, pale front, and decided it was too insipid. So a strip of matching grey card which also neatened the jagged-looking edge, is a big improvement I think. Pity I didn't think of it before, but hopefully, whoever visits will realise I did know better!
