For the second challenge of LIM's birthday month it's time for a one layer card with the Focus on the Sentiment.
Rummaging through my Stampin' Up sets of stamps, (whilst searching for something else, which I still haven't located) I came across this stamp. It's from a set with the title as on this sentiment...' Love you much'. I wanted to have the flower part coloured and the rest of the sentiment in black, so rather than try to ink all of the stamp with markers, I popped it in the microwave for a few seconds to loosen it from the wood block so that I could use it in my MISTI, and thereby stamp it in 2 takes. I coloured the stem and the flower with SU markers and stamped it, then cleaned that off and inked the rest of the image with Versafine Onyx Black ink... the stray bits of ink on the stem were wiped away with a Q tip and then it was stamped for a second time.
All I did after that was to colour in the LOVE part with a Wisp of Stella pen in Silver.
It's simplicity itself, and as February is the month of love, what could be better!
It's been great fun being back at Less is More and thanks once more to the terrific bunch of girls continuing the tradition!
