Less is More #22 & OLS #16

The theme at Less is More this week is Color. This is what I created after several cards went in the bin.


We were challenged to use opposite colors on the color wheel.


After a few failed attempts with violet & lime and  purple & yellow, I grabbed Festive Berries  and Peeled Paint Distress Markers. I used these to color the Rubbernecker Sketch Poppies that were still on my desk from making this card. I colored the flowers with the red and the stems and leaves with the green and stamped onto a card base. I then used the red marker to color the solid inside flower images, stamped off twice and then stamped over the poppy outlines. I really like how they do not match up perfectly.

The sentiment is from a new stamp set that I purchased from the latest release from WPlus9 - Love Mom. It's a great 3"x4" set containing a lovely script 3 piece sentiment, several smaller sentiments and small stitched images. I used part of the script sentiment and a small one colored with the red marker on my card.

That's it - a one layer card. One piece of card stock and some ink. Surprisingly, I like it. Since I started doing several CAS challenges to stretch out of my comfort zone (lots of layers, ribbons, embellies, bits & bobs), I am finding I like making CAS cards. Usually, I don't end up tossing as many attempts as I did today. 

I am also entering this into the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge #16 - Blossom.



Thanks for looking. Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week. Enjoy!

  3. Absolutely fabulous one layer card, I adore those sketchy poppies. I only have one Rubbernecker stamp which has yet to be used so I may need to add more to my stash!
    Thanks for sharing with us.
