Less is More ... Let's go dotty ...

Good morning, are you all set for the new challenge at Less is More?  This time it is everyone's favourite ... One Layer Card!!

Anything with dots e.g. images, sentiments, backgrounds

For this card I die cut the letters out of a sheet of masking paper and then stamped lots of individual dots through the negative space ... I wish I had a spotty background stamp as it would have been so much easier!!!  I then outlined the letters by piercing dots along one edge to add some additional dimension.  Then stamped 'birthday' to complete the sentiment.

As I had already die cut the letters I thought I would create a second card by using the letters as a mask:

I used the same small stamps and the same inks to create the panel of colour around the letters.  This time I pierced the inside of the letters to add a little more definition to them.

I used:
Simon Says Stamp:  Lots of Dots Stamp set
Visible Image:  Go To Words
Distress Inks - Festive Berries, Carved Pumpkin, Twisted Citron, Salty Ocean, Seedless Preserves, Wilted Violet.
Memento Ink - Dandelion
Versafine Onyx Black Ink

I hope you will join in with the challenge ... I would love to see your creations.

Stay Safe.


  1. A lot of work with a fabulous result. These are both wonderful cards. Too bad we are not neighbors... I have the perfect dotty background stamp you could have used!

  2. Brilliant!!! And a two-fer as well. It must have taken a while to stamp all those circles and dots but it is well worth the effort. The piercing adds so much to the design too. I can't pick a favourite out of these two because they are both awesome. Hope your week is fantastic xx

  3. My, you have been busy Elaine. All that work was so worth it though as both designs are gorgeous.
