Less is More - Challenge 2 - One layer

Here's a really quick card which I've made for the Less is More challenge this week.  I've used this technique before but you have to try out different cardstocks as it only works with some types.  My card is truly a clean and simple card, very clean in fact as I've coloured the image using bleach!  The poppies from Sheena Douglass were stamped and embossed in gold and then painted with neat bleach which lightens the card. The effect is better in real life - it's quite amazing to see it work and you never quite know how light it will go.  I've just added a few little glitter dots in the corners.


  1. Beautiful card
