What a Struggle!
The challenge at Less Is More this week is colour - and its ......Blue!!! and not just one shade - lots of blue shades!!!!
I have thought about it since Saturday, and guess what - nothing seemed right, but DD liked this one so here goes! I have used the large Clarity Swirl, inked with 2 different blue Versamark ink pads - Baby Blue and Royal Blue then heat embossed with clear embossing powder then I chalked aroung the image. I used 2 different shades of blue for the mat and the navy one again for my embossed 'faux' ribbon. The sentiment is from Craftwork cards on a navy, again, nestie circle. Lots of white card. On the he first version of this, I decided to use the small swirl, inked with Royal Bule - on my white card as a background, then I realised - no white card (again)! Quite liked this, so added ribbon, pearls and a greeting - definitely not LIM!
My original idea was to use another Clarity stamp and my Hero Arts French Writing, I printed the sentiment directly onto the card, stamped Life is a Journey stamp, (courtesy of Crafty Friend Diane) with Adirondack Denim ink, masked and then stamped the script, thought it looked too bare with just a little script peeking out, so added more, then chalked, then I realised there was no white card left!! Thought I would show it anyway!
