The challenge at Less is More this week is Blue & Green, and A Blog Named Hero is Freestyle.
Once I'd made this card, I couldn't decide whether I liked it. Now I like it. I think.
I inked up a floral background stamp with blue and green die inks, then kissed the chevron stamp onto the background stamp, and stamped it off onto white card, cleaned the chevron stamp then repeated. Then I cut out the chevrons and flipped one of them, and stuck them down with pop dots. They needed lifting from the base card to be effective.
Then, (I can't believe I did it) I dismembered a stamp! "It's your birthday" is all one stamp but I wanted to split it to get more flexibility from it. I suppose I could have masked it as required, but I took the plunge and dissected it instead.
