Less is More Colour Challenge


A quick post today for the latest challenge over at 'Less is More', my internet keeps going off so I'm trying to do this as quickly as possible!

There's a colour theme this week using this gorgeous picture as the inspiration:

I think I've just about managed it! I don't usually go for these sorts of colours so it was nice to try something new.

So here's what I've done:

I've used several different embossing folders that I've had for a while: Darice 'Rulers', Crafts Too 'Dots', Darice 'Honeycomb' and Darice 'Cloudy Sky' and embossed some Coredinations 'Elements' and 'So Mod!' papers, (I tried sanding them back but for some reason they looked a bit strange!) and the sentiment is from the Honeycomb stamp set from Clearly Besotted Stamps. I popped them all on 1mm foam pads to give it a bit of dimension but made two of them a little higher.

I thought it was going to end up looking a little boring because I always think my 'simple' cards do but I do really like this!

Anywho, hope you like the card!
