This is my third go at this week's Less is More challenge, using stripes. To me, this card has not photographed very well, but I hope you can see it. It is a basic hammered white card, which has gone a bit blue in the photographing. I might try to redo that again in the morning if the light is better.
The stripes this time have been embossed with gilding flakes. You dare not even breathe while applying those, they just fly everywhere. The stamps are a set from Barbara Gray's Clarity Stamps. The rose was coloured with my beloved Derwent watercolour pencils. (I have always loved crayons since I was tiny, but this set beats them all. I take a set with me on holiday as they fit very nicely into the caravan.) It is not obvious from this photo that I have used crystal glaze over the top of the rose to seal it.
Hopefully, I might get more ideas on how to interpret stripes, so you may see me back again this week. Who knows? In the meantime, thank you to all those who have visited me and left such lovely comments.
