We have a new challenge for you at Less Is More. It's a one layer week (one layer = one piece of cardstock folded in half) and we want to see spots and stripes in your one layer cards!
Our sponsor in May is the wonderful Uniko and some of the DT is showcasing their great products! Don't miss any of the gorgeous inspiration, click HERE. We also have a guest designer, one of my first acquaintances here in bogland, Sue. She makes such beautiful CAS cards. Congrats on your GD spot, Sue!
Now let's have a quick look at my cards.
Sentiment stamps by MFT
Other stamps by Simon Says Stamp
This card has no special techniques or anything, it's simply stamped -after I was sure about the design I wanted to make I think this took under 5 minutes to make! :)

Sentiment stamp by Freshly Squeezed Stamps (no longer in business)
Flower stamps by CAS-ual Fridays
This card took a bit longer than 5 minutes but not much!
I've masked off a wide stripe and gently brushed grey ink to it to make it stand out from the white. My tools for this are not exactly fancy: an old blusher brush + very old and dry black memento ink pad that's nowadays grey! :)
I then stamped the flowers and colored them in with Copics. After that was dry I added some Wink of Stella to the colored in areas and made the white dots in the flowers stand out even more by using white gel pen. I also added extra dots to some of the completely black "flowers". I think these could double as snow flakes in a winter card! :)

Now it's your turn to show where our one layer theme Spots and Stripes takes you. Happy crafting!
