Fabulous Fuchsias

This is my entry for this weeks Less is More challenge, the theme is Three Colours or Three Shades of One Colour.



I decided to go with the option of Three Colours, I have used Hero Arts Shadow Ink Forever Green and Raspberry Jam and my ribbon has been coloured with a French Navy ProMarker.  I used the gorgeous Clearly Besotted Fabulous Fuchsias Stamp and Die set, the sentiment is from this set as well and I used my Lawn Fawn Tag, You're It die to cut the tag.

To add a little texture to my card I coloured some Dreamweaver Matt Embossing Paste with a little of the Forever Green ink and applied it through my Memory Box Mesh Stencil.


I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:

Less is More Challenge 170 - Colour Challenge
Sketchy Colours Challenge 209 - Red, White, Green
Love to Create Challenge 114 - Say it with Flowers
Quirky Crafts Challenge 9 - Something beginning with S (string, stencil)

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

I like this clean design with tag. The textured look you've created with embossing paste adds that little something extra to this card without ruining the clean look. Nice!!!

Andrea said...

What a really pretty card Pauline I love the fuchsia's and the tag design its so very pretty ..I do struggle with CAS cards and this one is a peach of an example..I really like the design.I have not used pastes as yet another on my list to do techniques ..teh effect is great and gives the card texture without overpowering it...good choice. Unfortunately work didn't go to plan yesterday so I didn't get the chance to go online or do any crafting so I haven't yet checked out day 3 of the course...Now I am really playing catch up but hey its not a race and it's not going anywhere. Thank you for visiting yesterday and your kind and encouraging comment..as they always are I must say...I really appreciate your visits and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you...I hope you have a have wonderful day...Hugs Andrea X
