Week 192 Colour Challenge

A new month, a new challenge, a new sponsor... 
well not so much new, as back with us again.
We are delighted to welcome back 
April Sponsor
We're sure that you'll agree that Stephanie produces the most amazing range of stamps and dies and we are delighted to welcome her back as a sponsor to Less is More once again.
If you haven't yet discovered her amazing products, click on the link and take a peek, you won't be disappointed.

For our Colour challenge this month we have chosen 
Autumn's Bounty
Sounds kinda poetic doesn't it...
so we'd love to see autumnal shades in your cards.
Don't forget to make them CAS of course!


 Darkroom Door leaf stamp coloured with Lyra Aquacolour crayons and then misted with water.  Used a Pigma pen to outline the individual stamps, which were masked.


 I inked a piece of card with some Distress Inks (Peeled Paint, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo) using sponge daubers and overlapped the colours somewhat! Then I die cut the leaves and inked a little more around the edges of each one with one of the darker shades, just to give a little definition.
The backdrop is simply swiped with a little watercolour (distress ink), using a fairly large paintbrush.
Being totally unhelpful, I'm not sure of the origin of the sentiment stamp but the dies are from Cheery Lynn. The latter are a sort of pinky purple  colour! If anyone is all over this kind of thing please let me know.
This one used:
Clearly Besotted: Frame Mat Die with a Framelit circle cut from the centre
Autumn Blossoms: Acorn stamps
Fresh Flowers: 'Thank You' Sentiment
Marianne Creatables: Leaf Dies
MFT Die-Namics; sentiment strips with Doodlebug DP
and to finish some twine, Wink of Stella and glossy accents

We all have extra examples on our personal blogs so please pop over and visit us there to see them. We love to have visits too!

The trees in the UK are just beginning to change colour, let's hope we have a wonderful display again this year.

  2. I dread fall because it means winter isn't far behind, but I must admit that I love the colors of fall, particularly on beautiful cards.
