One of the Dare to Get Dirty Challenges from Jami involved More is More. In order to complete the challenge I needed to make 2 cards. One was to have "more" than the other. More involved extra punches, sponging, distressing or extra backgrounds to name a few of the endless possibilites. I used Wild Wasabi, Ruby Red, Soft Sky, Basic Gray and Whisper White for my color combination. On the first card I left the color layers each as one single layer. While on the second card I matted each layer with Basic Gray. The first card is fairly simple and doesn't involve any real extra embellishments or techniques. I used Baroque Motifs, Define Your Life and Garden Silhouettes for my stamp sets.
This second card I also used my Paisley background stamp on the main card layer. I added distressing to each of the layers, paper piercing, direct to paper inking, extra punches and extra brads. If you are new to stamping this will give you an idea of where to start and where you can go with your original card. It was fun creating the two same but unique cards for this challenge. I also used Beate's Sketch Challenge for the weekend. I altered the layer sized to make a 4 1/4 square card.
