Less is More

Today I wanted to get messy but it just wasn't happening for me lol so decided to make a card for Less is More challenge and this week they are getting fruity :) and knew just the stamp I wanted to use  ( inkadinkado )
Stamped in black Archival coloured with DI's and perfect pearls on the dragon flies wings then softly framed with coloured chalks .
Now how messy can you get making a simple card ? very  lol I droped the chalks on the floor they landed upside down out of the tray and shattered .
It's also anything goes at Come and get it

The pear looks great against the oriental background. A super card. xx

Lovely :-) I have that stamp, too and love it. I like the way you framed it, too. You're not on your own with the chalks, btw - I've done that a few times and some of mine are in tiny bits but I rarely use them so I don't worry about it, lol.
