Saturday Slot

Well how are you on this warm and pleasant day? Just a smidge of rain - enough to use as an excuse to hole up in my craft room - but mostly a dry and get out walking sort of day. And I did!

I'm sharing a card I made - during that bit of rain - using the colours from Color Throwdown and the theme from Less is More.

Such a gorgeous scrummy inspiration photo and colours which I hope you can see reflected in my card.


I brushed on some background colour first and then over stamped it with the repeating flower heads.



And as the colours did make me smile the sentiment was an obvious choice. Oh and did I mention I was showcased last week at Less is More? That made me smile too!

Supplies:
Stamps: Uniko, Flower Power #5 & All Occasion Sentiments #6 
Inks: SU, melon mambo, rose red, peekaboo peach, wisteria wonder; Memento, tuxedo black

 
So pleased you had time to drop by today, thanks a bunch.  And keep crafting!

  7. That's not an easy colour combo but you've conveyed it brilliantly onto your design. Great repetitive stamping too. Well done on your ShowCASe too!
