It's been ages since I played at Less is More so I decided to put that right today. This week's theme is "stripes" on a one layer card.
I chose a striped animal as the focus of my card - I love these beautiful zebras! I wanted to make something to send to a friend who slipped on the ice last Thursday, broke his elbow and subsequently had to have surgery on it. Warm colours and African animals was about as far away from ice as I could get!
I stamped the zebras, cut a mask for them from ordinary copy paper with a little Zig two-way adhesive on the back and then used plain paper to mask the strip and sponged with ink.
Just a tiny touch of shading on the zebras with grey Copic, a stamped sentiment and I called it done.
Zebra Pair and sentiment from Common Cold (both CHF, retired)
Paper: Smooth White
Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)
