Less is More #231

Hi there friends it's time for another Colour week

at Less is More

and in true Independence Day style we're looking for Red, White and Blue
Here's my examples and as always you'll find more inspiration
over on the LIM blog from the other DT members

This one is inspired by the wonderful Laura Bassen HERE
I love how she uses bright colours and inks up shapes to create
a striking geometric design. 

Card Recipe:
Ranger: Dye Inks
Various circle dies from my stash
Hero Arts: Stamp & Cut Happy set for sentiments and the mini circles

I'd like to link this next card up at CASology where
the theme is 'POP' I hoped it might look like fireworks
and they certainly POP! Also there's a new challenge for this month
over at Happy Little Stampers so I'm heading across there too.

Card Recipe:
Clearly Besotted: Dandelion Dream 
I thought the flower heads could work fireworks maybe!
Clearly Besotted: Mini basic banner stamps and die


... and last but not least I'd like to enter 2 other challenges with this one

Card Recipe:
Sizzix Framelits: Star dies
MFT Die-namics: Basic stitched edge dies
Uniko: Simply Said Birthday - heat embossed with Hero Arts White EP
Dotty design paper - has been in my stash forever but I'm 
not sure who the manufacturer is

Ok it's time to hand over to you again and let's see 
where your inspiration and talent takes you.
Can't wait to see what you come up with this week.

Thanks for calling by and I'll be back at 9am with
