Shrink to Fit
This was a very intriguing challenge from DCM! "You are allowed to cover no more than a 5x5cms area of your card with paper or embellishment - the rest of the card must be left plain".
Less is better is not usually the motto of the cardmaker! But here is my attempt. I used an art mould for the first time with friendly plastic, and highlighted it on mesh with a HOTP metal accent (smaller than 5 x 5). The plastic looked more black than gold, which surprised me, so I used some Stickles on top. For the lettering I used my AB Seas alphabet stamps and silver embossing powder, after abandoning attempts to double emboss (you couldn't read the writing).
