Back to cards today and this one is for Less is More. It's a colour challenge this week and earth tones are required.
As always the first challenge of each month is a colour challenge and this time we have chosen
So out came my long forsaken Memento neutrals and my favourite bicycle from Clearly Besotted was stamped and diecut.
I then used another Clearly Besotted stamp to make the three tone border. I punched a scalloped edge on a piece of white card and tied some twine to the top before adhering it to the border strip.
I stamped a few little lines to suggest movement near the back wheel - this was from Uniko Studio's explosion set - and then mounted the bicycle onto pads to add dimension.
I stamped the sentiment on top of the lightest border strip. Then the last thing I did was to add a little sparkle to the butterflies and skid marks with my favourite Wink of Stella.
I'm rather liking these earthtones and finding them very soothing - maybe their resemblance to chocolate may have something to do with it!
