Less is more week 6 - Off the edge

Phew! Only just made this week's lessismore challenge, but the beauty of these one layer cards is that they are so quick to do.

For this card I simply masked off an area, applied Versacolor Orchid ink using a brush and stamped the butterfly (starting off the edge of course).  I added a bit more of the ink on the wings of the butterflies and then stamped my sentiment. How quick is that!!!

The butterfly stamps are Hero Arts Antique Engravings and the sentiment stamp is Stampin Up!

Another great challenge from Chrissie and Mandi, I really do enjoy taking part.  Can't wait to see what they come up with tomorrow.
