Today's card was created for the current Less Is More card challenge. This week the challenge is REPETITION. I love this because the possibilities are endless! I have a fun stamp set that I won as blog candy a few years ago from Technique Tuesday and I hadn't inked it up in a while. I thought long and hard about what image I could repeat over an over and it occurred to me that the fun little smiley faces from their stamp set Sending Smiles would be a perfect image to repeat. I started by taking a plain piece of Copic friendly cardstock and drawing some diagonal lines very lightly with a pencil. I stamped the smiley face along those lines and then I had the brilliant idea to mask each of those images off using some masking paper and stamping the linen background from MFT in the background. When I say that was a brilliant idea what I mean is not so much. I had to stamp, fussy cut, and adhere about 20 of those little faces. To say that it was time consuming is an understatement so I will most likely not be mass producing this card anytime soon. But it turned out okay. I then stamped one of the sentiments from the same stamp set onto more white cardstock and cut a fishtail banner and adhered it straight onto the panel and then the whole thing was adhered straight to my white card base. I will be donating this card to the Live Love Cards campaign. If you are not familiar with this awesome charity for card makers you should definitely check it out! Anyway, I hope you like my card!
