3 squares

The challenge over at Less is more this week is to use 3 squares. I  had in my mind that I would use these stamps (never seen ink and had them years!) as I had dug them out a while go and they were in my "pending use" pile! I was originally going for three squares down one side, but I found that the card-stock I had either wasn't big enough or left too much white space. So this is the configuration I ended up with, combined with a PTI sentiment. I used a big and juicy to stamp the images, using the rock and roll technique, and to daub the edges of the squares.
I'm also entering this card into:
Crafty Catz-friendship
Stamp something-something with flowers
Crazy for challenges-use flowers

Great card, those squares may have also worked nearer the centre, if you can slit the sentiment
Super card though, love the shading
Thanks so much

By rock and roll do you mean the purple acrylic Rock-A-Blocks from Crafters Companion?

Very elegant grunge and the stamps really make the card, so delicate:-)
