Less is more lemonsPosted: June 26, 2011 Filed under: CAS, Tart and Tangy 24 Comments
It is quite a while since I joined in the Less is More challenge which seems to have more participants every week. Even when I don’t get to play along I enjoy browsing through all that creativity.
It is a sketch challenge this week at Less is More and I settled on lemons for a bright summery card. I initially stamped the lemons in a row and fiddled with a canvas border either side but ended up cutting out the lemons and popping them up instead. I also began with a yellow card base but much preferred the canvas print instead. My favorite part of the card is the little water droplets I added with crystal effects.

Brilliant Heather, made my mouth water just looking atit!
I love it to bits Heather – the Crystal Effects droplets make the lemons look zingy fresh!
How about adding the sentiment in the lemon colour? Is it more readable in the original than in the photo?
Love it Heather!
Just need the G&T to go with them!
Thank you so much!

I love all the yellow! It makes such a happy card!
One of my absolutely favorite summer sets is Tart & Tangy, and you’ve done it justice. Never thought of using Crystal Effects, but I’m sure it really maks the card. Using only yellow is perfect, too. Lovely!
A fabulous summery card! Love it!
