Less is More

Hello I decided to have a go at the Less is More challenge,not realising how much harder it is leaving all this white space. I have used  the bleaching technique with this using Gathered Twigs Distress ink and  an Inkylicious stamp.xxx

This is great Doreen, I love the bleach blocked background and all that white space makes the central image stand out so well. Wish I was brave enough just to use one colour as you have done here.

Sometimes less is more, it's such a beautiful image why should it not shine as the centrepiece without fussy embellishments round it? It's just gorgeous like this.
