The Less is More Challenge we pick, you pick, guestdesigner

I'm so honoured to be the Guest designer for the Less is More Challenge blog this fortnight.

The challenge is a recipe: we pick, you pick. And I've picked matt.

Sparkles in the heat embossing and enamel dots and matt in the Distress Oxides and enamel dots :-D

For my card I masked off the cardbase and then applied Distress Oxides:  Spun Sugar and  Seedless Preserves. Heat set it before stamping the Hi from Woodware  (jgs670-hello) with  Versamark ink and applied Wow! embossing powder (Hot Gossip).

Then I stamped the other bit of the
sentiment from the same Woodware set with Versafine Claire ink.

Applied my enamel dots.
