Hi everybody

My second post today.  I decided to use a couple of new stamps for Less is More whose challenge is One Layer - Leaves.  One is the Stampin Up French Leaves, which I love.  The second is a Penny Black stamp - Snowflake and Holly, which I am really struggling with to get a decent image.

For this first card I stamped the text with archival ink, and then the leaves were done with a Kaleidoscope Cappucino pad

On this card I have stamped with Olive Archival ink, and in order to get the snowflake to show up I have added a holographic snowflake, which has promply turned pink when I photographed it.  My bin is full of various versions of this, trying out different inks.  I did think that maybe the card is just soaking up the ink too much, but I guess I am just going to have to persevere with it. 

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
