So Saturday

Warmer Springlike weather seems to have finally found its way to my neck of the woods and crafting time has been gobbled up by the call of my garden. But I did mange to grab a little time today to visit my craft room and came up with a card for Less is More and Color Throwdown challenges.


We'd love you to display our banner          http://colorthrowdown.blogspot.co.uk/2016/04/throwdown-countdown-386.html 
  White space but not WHITE

Here's my card:


I decided to use the turquoise from Color Throwdown as my non-white white space for Less is More. I used some white embossing paste and a stencil to make the left hand strip of flowerheads.


While that was drying I stamped and handcut a butterfly using mustardy green paper. This was added to the card with a foam square. I finished off with a simple sentiment.

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, English Country Garden Butterflies & All Occasion Sentiments #6
Inks: Mmento, tuxedo black
Stencil: TCW, Mini Postcard
Embossing: Dreamweaver paste, white

Thanks for looking today, I really value your time.  And keep crafting!
