Sketch journaling and LIM sponsored by Stampotique

Stampotique is sponsoring the Less Is More challenges this month and some of the DT is joining in the challenges.  This week they are asking us to make a one layer card with a flourish.  I REALLY had a hard time with this (obviously! lol) BUT...in the end I love my card. :)
  I just used painters tape and made a square , then I sprayed with some distress ink and dried .  I stamped peacock #2065 over it.  Then I used the very tip (end) of a very old stencil and dropped some distress ink from my mat over it for the fleurish.  I punched a star and inked the edges in black and added the gem.  Easy as can be!
Below is ONE of my art journal pages using the new sketch challenge over at the Unscripted Sketches challenge blog.  :)
Oh yeah....lol! I had alot of fun with this!  I was thinking of my kids and how they are all grown now...
I did this starting a little like Dyan Reavly style by spraying water and Dylusions ink.  Same with the tags.  I used "Jo's flower cube" and stamped some flowers in black . Then " scalloped lace border stamp "(Roc Nicholas) on the bottom and some dp scraps that I sewed on. I copied and cut out the pic to fit on the line of dp.  The hearts on the tag were just cut out from some textured paper and sewn on.  I am also adding this to the list of journal pages over at "art journal everyday".  I also would like to enter this in the new challenge over at the C4C blog to use "circles" on your creation.  On the top right corner I had painted circles in acrylic and lined around them in black pit pen.  TFL!

I love your journal page. You are really good Jane! The card is great too. You would never think that putting so little on a card would look so nice.
