Less is More week 318 - Teal
Hi LIMettes! We've made it to the weekend and a new clean and simple card making challenge with Less is More. This week, we'd like you to use the simply beautiful colour of teal in your cards.
As always, as it's the start of a new month we have a sponsor to announce and this time it's the fabulous Dies to Die For.
I needed a wedding card for a friend, so without further ado here's my first card.
I loosely stamped the background stripes using My Favorite Things Distressed Stripes Background in VersaColor Celadon. I then splattered two co-ordinating shades of green and teal over the top, and added a light splattering of metallic silver.
The floral spray is from Altenew Botanical Garden, cut with the matching die and watercoloured using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens.
The sentiment is from Altenew Vintage Roses, stamped and heat embossed in silver and die cut using an Avery Elle Pierced Banner Layer Elle-ments and popped up on foam pads.
I liked the effect of this card so much I made another similar one, this time using Uniko Originally Organic Additions, gifted to me by a very lovely person. It was a wonderful surprise when it turned up!
I stamped and heat embossed the leaf heart in gold, then added flowers. They were watercoloured with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I inked the centre of the heart lightly with Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and layered up the panel with some teal card stock. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental, die cut with a sentiment strip from Avery Elle Pierced Bannel Layer Dies.
That's all from me this week... have a lovely weekend all of you :)
