Wednesday Words

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
Earth Tones.
We'd love you to display our banner 

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!

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, Good times + matching die; Uniko Studio, explosion
Inks: Memento, toffee crunch, peanut brittle, potters clay, rich cocoa
Punch: Xcut scallop edger
Embellishments: twine, Wink of Stella, clear.

Thanks for looking today, hope you enjoyed your visit.
