Less is more challenge


This weeks challenge is for a one layer card with the image going 'off the edge', I thought this old Fuschia stamp would be ideal for this as I could imagine that they are hanging down from a basket. I stamped the image with Adirondak - eggplant and coloured with Promarkers, the sentiment, also in eggplant is from Polkadoodles.I originally took a photo of my card but as usual the white looked lilac and although I tried to alter it in Picassa it wouldn't work so cleaned the scanner plate again but I can still see marks on the card close up, they aren't there in realilty - honest!!

Maureen, have you tried scanning it with a piece of black paper behind it. Then you can adjust the black/white balance in your photo editing program.

I love the lavenders...a beautiful card!

Looks fine to me Maureen - in fact it looks beautiful. That's a lovely stamp and it makes a refreshing change to have a simple stamped design, although I do like the clever layered and textured cards too.
