Less is More #227


Morning all are we ready for a new challenge from
Less is More - I hope so ...

it's Colour week and we are looking for Sunset 
so lots of yummy colours to play with.

Here's my examples and for more inspiration please
check out the fabulous creations from my teamies on the LIM Blog


Card Recipe:
I've gone with a sunset-type coloured skyline although I'm no artist so 
I've no doubt got the colours all the wrong way around!
Using blended distress ink: Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade,
Festive Berries and Picked Raspberry
Clearly Besotted: Life's a Circus stamp;
 sentiment from the Design a Tree set both heat-embossed

I'd like to enter this card over at Virginia's View Challenge 
as I've used an Ombre style to my night sky




It was hubby's birthday this week and I made this card 
for him for a laugh ... he's not really into the soppy cards;
the more silly and insulting the better in his opinion!


Card Recipe:
Mama Elephant: Pandamonium image & sentiment
Cheery Lynn: Picket fence die
Distress Inks: Mustard Seed, Wild Honey & Spiced Marmalade
I was hoping to limit the inking to the semi-circle of sunset but thanks
to a 'smudge' on the outer edge of the card I ended up going all round the 
edge of the card base too but I think it gives it some fun detail.

There's a 'Masculine' theme over at Simon Says Stamp this 
week and as this card was made for a guy I'm heading over there with it.
I'd also like to try my luck in the Happy Little Stampers Sketch Challenge

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog   
                  

Ok crafters over to you and as ever, I'm excited to see where your inspiration 
takes you this week. I'll be dropping in to check out your creations soon.
Thanks for calling by and have a fun day.
I'll be back tomorrow with a fun new challenge over at AAA Cards.
