LIM - Butterfly

Well now looking at many of the Less is More entries over the last few weeks my ideas about less is more are changing.    Chrissie and Mandi might not agree but it seems to me that more or less anything goes so long as there is either just one significantly large image and not a lot else or more than one image with lots of empty space.   It seems that space is not always white either.

With that in mind I used one of the new Tando Masks on silk card and then dabbed Nick Bantock ink all over the surface.    Andy Skinner stamps from Word up stamped in the center of the masked flourish.   Butterfly stamped onto vellum cut out and attached just at the body.   Three pearl top brads to finish.   Stamps and Mask available from Craft-Room.

  5. Hi Zoe
    You re correct the space does not need to be 'white' but preferably blank.
    yours is slightly busy, due to the effect
    But, CAS on the whole

    Thanks for your comments on my cards - unfortunately I can't remember the brand of the swirls which is why I didn't list them. Sorry :(
