Less is More



Too simple to blog?

Less is More's latest theme is to have the text as the main focal point. Not sure I succeeded as I keep looking at the bee, but the text is the thing I read first, so the jury is out on that one.

Both stamps by Stampotique. (A World All Her Own and Medium Bee with a tiny bee on the side,...this is the tiny bee.

Also available from Happy Daze here in the UK.

This is so striking Jo, with perfect composition (IMO), I too read the sentiment first then admired your small bee. I love your blue colour splash - still CAS but with lots to see.

Super!!! The text is beautiful and I read it first, the bee image and spatter effect adds to the card. Just Lovely!

Lynn said...

Yes, you do look at the bee, but only because the sentiment relates to her - loving the splatter. Lynn x

jo i'm going to have to disagree, yes the bee is the first thing I saw, mainly because of that gorgeous blue jet of colour, but the sentiment is so gorgeous that it is that I will remember about your card, absolutely beautiful!

Dotty Jo said...

Hi Jo, I think being drawn to the picture is just the way the human brain is wired... but then you linger on the sentiment. Either way this is seriously fab!!! Jo x

Your corner of turquoise drew me in as it's such a beautiful colour. Broken China DI by any chance?
The sentiment gives an ethereal feel, a place where you can hide and enjoy... The bee is beautiful and really makes the card :-)
