Take 2 On Less Is More

This is the first card I made for the Less Is More Challenge ~ Masculine.
I wasn't sure this fitted the criteria of Less Is More as have used a few layers on the card, so hence the card I posted yesterday.

I do like the colours in this one which I stamped with an old olive ink pad adding more colours with my SU! markers before stamping on to my card stock. I have then blended a little bit of the colour with my water brush, love the subtle effect it gives.

Now the question is which one do you prefer?

I don't know which I prefer but this one IS lovely - love the matting and layering too

Not too sure if it meets the 'Less is more'criteria either, but it is a fab card all the same. I like the muted tones you have used. Love Sheila (Cyprus)

Another great card Sonia, hmmm which one do I prefer, maybe the other one....I like the colours better and the embossed lines....I think. Love them both though so it's not an easy decision lol :O) Viv xx

This is a truly lovely card, xx

I like this one very much too Sonia, It does have clean lines and has the CAS look about it although there is rather a lot on it.
I think it's a great card nevertheless!

I definitely prefer the first which was slightly simpler but they're both gorgeous.

I prefer this one - not to say the other one is not good because it is.
