Less is More #235

Morning crafty friends are you ready for a new 

Less is More Challenge

We've got some super fruity colours we'd 
like you to use for this week's Colour week!

Berry Shades is the theme and here's what I've created and 
there's more DT inspiration on the main blog HERE

Card Recipe:
Winnie & Walter: Multi Facetted stamped with Versamark
then heat embossed using Hero Arts white embossing powder before
inking and blending with distress inks; Spun sugar, Picked Raspberry, 
Worn Lipstick, Festive Berries and Seedless Preserves.
The sentiments are from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut birthday set 
with some Doodlebug sequins to accent.

with this card where it's an 'Anything Goes' week

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog

Next up I've used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch 

Card Recipe:
Mama Elephant: Carnival Cupcakes 
Clearly Besotted: So Sweet sentiment (retired set)
I've literally spilt the fruity jams for the background to my cupcake
using the same berry coloured distress inks smooshed, flicked and spritzed
with more Doodlebug sequins to finish and a little glossy accents to the cherry.

... and I've one more to share which is also to link up at CASology where the 
cue card this week is 'Wings' - I can't resist a butterfly even if it's not very original!

Having masked an area of white cardstock I've heat embossed
the butterflies from Clearly Besotted: Everything Changes using Hero Arts white
 then inked over the top with those yummy distress inks again 
(Seedless Preserves, Picked Raspberry, Festive Berries, Worn Lipstick, and Spun Sugar).
The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted; Say it in Style and I've added
glossy accents to parts of the butterflies for added detail.

Ok over to you crafty folk and I'm looking forward to being bowled over 
by your creations as I've struggled to find my mojo this week.

Thanks as always for calling by and I'll be back in an hour
with the latest challenge details for Addicted to CAS.
