Less is More #218

Morning friends and Happy Easter weekend.

I'm here with this week's challenge for Less is More
and it's colour week ....

Predominately BLACK
(you can use a teeny bit of another colour but very minimal)


Here's my examples and first up a 'silhouette effect'


Card recipe:
Marianne Creatables: Lord & Lady Dies
That makes 2 posts in the last week using Marianne's dies - do you find
you don't use some stash for ages then can't put it down!!!
Clearly Besotted: Mr & Mrs stamps - flourish and sentiment
There are a couple of teeny silver gems to the flourish too.


Here I've added a mini touch of pink with some Papermania gems


Card Recipe:
Altenew: Hennah Elements (first outing and I love this set!)
Clearly Besotted: Happy Birthday set (sentiment) heat embossed in 
Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

I'd like to enter this card at Simon Says Stamp 
as it's their 6th Birthday - birthday themed challenge plus
 Time Out where we are asked to CASE Kim's card with our own twist. 
I've not used colour on my flowers but kept to a CAS floral theme.


Ok crafty pals it's over to you.
So thanks for stopping by today, 
enjoy the challenge and have a fun Easter-time.
Let's hope we have some glorious springlike weather too!
 
See you soon.
Sarah

  1. Love the silhoette card, fab design. And when I saw your flower card I thought that would be so good for TO!! Such a very clever take on Kim's card, love how you kept the flowers colour free giving an airy feel to your card. So pleased you joined is at TO.

  3. Love these! Great use of that flourish on the bride. I'm gutted, last time I bought some goodies I had the Hennah Elements in my basket but had to narrow my order down and removed it...I WANT IT NOW! Love it in black xx

  22. Your Altenew Hennah card is stunning. I so appreciate the card recipe, but could you please share a bit more detail? Black heat embossing? And what did you use for the coloring? in addition to the gorgeous pink Gems , what did you use for the color? Thanks for sharing your work.
