Less is More Week 79

Less is More week 79 - Colour

It's ages since I've done a card for Less is More, but with so many birthdays in August I had to make a start and this challenge was perfect for my new stamps!


As it is the first of the month and colour we have chosen
Blue & Green

There is an old saying
Blue & Green should not be seen, Unless there's a colour inbetween!
In this day and age no colour combo is taboo, in some cases the wilder the better.

You may wish to go natural, with summer blue skies and green foliage or quirky, snazzy,
navy and lime. It's completely up to you, we cannot wait to see what you come up with.
 
 
 
 
For my card I used my new stamps from Chocolate Baroque - Pretty Poppies.
I stamped with VersaMark and black EP, coloured with China Blue and Shabby Shutters DI and water brush. Sentiment is from CB Birthday Words.
I distressed around the edges with China Blue, couldn't find any suitable green to layer with so coloured white card with Shabby Shutters. Added a little shrink plastic butterfly.

Thanks for looking
Sandra
