LIM 65



For this weeks Less Is More challenge we have a very simple sketch (a square card base with a square or a circle image and a sentiment). The image is a favourite of mine by Hampton Arts stamped with plum archival ink. The text stamp is one I had made. It looked a little too stark so I added some splatters. If this wasn't for LIM I would have added some more elements to the card such as a long flourish running behind the image or some pale grey stamps in the background or even some torn patterned paper but the object of the challenge is restraint so I have been as plain as possible.
