Less is More #249

Hello there, it's that time again - don't know where the
week has gone but there's a new challenge at 

Less is More 
and it's colour week with a FIRE theme!

This week in the UK it's been Bonfire night so lots of 
inspiration if you were out in the cold and wet on Thursday evening.
You'd certainly want to be as close to the bonfire as possible!

Anyway here's my cards using 'fire' colours

For me you can't beat distress inks for creating those fiery colours!
and here I've masked off a 'curved' triangle on my card base then 
used Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade, 
Wild Honey, Ripe Persimmon and a little Barn Door at the top. I've done
my flicking and spritzing trick with water and perfect pearls then splattered
some Gold Delicata ink and to the front panel also. 

This panel is die-cut using MFT Stitched Basic Border dies and Blueprints 15
with a white heat embossed sentiment from Uniko: All Occasion Sentiments #6
 die-cut with Fishtail flags, also MFT. Finally a few glittery jelly gems from my stash!

I should probably have rotated this the other way with the rocket above
the fire but I loved the idea of it heading towards the heat of the sun!
Anyway I've smooshed here with the same distress inks as above, 
flicked and spritzed again, added some stars and swirls from the
CBS Blast Off II set with Gold Delicata and heat embossed.
The rocket and sentiment are from the same set!

I'd like to enter this one over at CASology where it's
a 'Vehicle' theme this week - is a rocket a vehicle?
Well it gets from A to B in my book so I'll give it a whirl!

There's more fabulous designs from my fellow teamies HERE
and I hope you enjoy the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and I'll be back again soon!
