Hi LIMettes! It's Saturday and that means a new challenge over at Less is More, the clean and simple card making challenge blog. We're using three adjacent colours from the colour wheel.
This week is the start of our birthday month (woohoo!) and we launch our new look blog and logo. Do check it out and let us know what you think :) We've also got a treat for you. There will be one sponsor per week guest designing and offering a prize throughout February to celebrate our birthday!
This week our sponsor is Happy Little Stampers, and guest designer Kylie has a lovely card for you so do head over to the main blog to leave her some comment love.
For my first card, I used the ink smooshing technique to create a strip of Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks on my card base. I then used My Favorite Things Absolutely Fabulous to die cut a panel which I popped up on foam tape over the base. Finally I die cut several more "fabulous" from dark grey card and one from white card, glued them together and added them to the panel so that the dark grey card adds a distinct shadow and depth.
My second card uses a stencil (My Favorite Things Concentric Circles Grid) and Distress Ink watercolouring in Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass and Evergreen Bough to create a background. Extra splatters of Stormy Sky add a distressed look. I stamped, coloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and die cut a My Favorite Things Snuggle Bunny and popped him over the background. Then I stamped a sentiment from My Favorite Things Make Yourself at Home, and added a hand drawn line.
That's it for this week but I'm looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery - good luck!
