okay here comes the card.
This is another last minute card. I was down looking after mum and dad, got home late this arvo. Unloaded the car, got Elysha settled, unpacked, takeaway (ahh bless Friday) and sat and looked through Feedly. Too much to catch up on, then saw the Less is More Challenge had only 10 hours left so I couldn't go to bed and do in the morning. I had another of those ideas or six stewing in the old brain but with shortness of time and tiredness setting in I went with the easier of the ideas.
I love how this card turned out but there was no way to get the camera to show the true depth of colour in the blended distress inks panel. Night time, lights, flash etc so you will just have to believe me. The colours are deep and rich and remind me of berries, boysenberries, blue berries, raspberries.
I used the Hero Art background stamp again, this one was actually embossed on watercolour paper but I distress ink blended and will have to try with watercolours another time.
I have used a third of the panel and cut two white panels same size. the watercolour panel is flat and the white panels a lifted ever so slightly. I then cut out the 'Thanks' word 3 times in white and glued together then the purply berry colour once. In a couple of photos it looks splotchy, don't know why because IRL its perfect, no glue marks. Maybe reflection.
Even the 'Thanks isn't showing up true colour here, I am disappointed.
Okay thats it. I hope this fits the bill. Still feeling my way these days.
Marybeth was kind enough to point out another Challenge I could enter this in.
Since the Die cut 'Thanks' is a Serendipity die I will enter this in their Monochrome Challenge
Thanks for coming to visit & I hope you come again.
