All the 3's

Hi there,
Hope you're well. Just a quick post from the not so sunny Isle of Man.
That's right, it's raining again.  Good job I've lots to keep me busy inside. In fact, where has this morning gone! Not that I've spent much time in my craft room - Mr Grey has a lot to answer for!!

I have got my Less is More entry to show you though.
It's ONE LAYER Week (yeah!) and the recipe is .....

That's three of anything - three colours, three stamps, three words, the number three ...... you get the idea.  We still have to keep it clean and simple, lots of white space and of course just the one layer - simples!

Here's mine ..... it's full of 3's

I used the Penny Black 'quite dandy' stamp (3 flowers)
Using a mask, I inked circles around each flower head with 3 different Distress Inks - Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick and the new Picked Raspberry  (3 circles & 3 colours)
Added a Hero Arts sentiment (3 words)
And the final little touch was a tiny gemstone in the centre of each flower (3 gems).

I think I've managed to keep to the recipe don't you.

Must dash, hubby's off across to the UK later (sigh!)  I'd better check that he's got everything packed and ready to go.  Where would he be without me!

Thanks for looking.

Bye for now
