Less is More challengePosted: February 8, 2011
I had a chance to make a card for the new Less is More challenge blog over the weekend. The colours of the challenge were black, white and pink. Unfortunately this scan makes the pinks look a lot bolder than they are. The sponged pinks look much softer and the darkest colour, Rose Red does not look so red on the card. I am pretty fussy about colour matching so the pinks and reds clashing here are not pleasing me. Edited to add the photo below taken on a friend’s camera. You can see the colours are a little softer.
I used post it notes to mask and kept moving the bottom one up a little between spongings, changing from Pretty in Pink to Rose Red half way through. I stamped the Queen Anne’s Lace and the sentiment in black and extended the stems with a fine tip marker.
Make sure you check out the new blog, the challenge already has close to 100 participants, so it is off to a great start.
