Week 231 - Colour

Not only have we a new challenge for you today
but it's the start of a new month and we are delighted to
have Ribbon Girl sponsoring our challenge once again

Do please visit the Ribbon Girl online store, we're sure you'll be amazed
at the array of crafty goodies available! What's more they are kindly offering
a £10 gift voucher for our July Winner!

So onto our challenge and being the first week of the month
it's the return of the COLOUR challenge at Less is More and
in honour of our friends across the pond, it could be none other than

Please keep to these colours; any additional shades should be kept to neutral or metallics.
This is what we've come up with for your inspiration!

This is compilation of die cuts. The cruise ship is from Quickcutz, the 'welcome' 
from Paper Smooches, the Home from Tattered Lace and the squares from 
Spellbinders and MFT. The sea is a print from some Aqua Tint inks.


This one is inspired by the wonderful Laura Bassen HERE
I love how she uses bright colours and inks up shapes to create
a striking geometric design. 

Card Recipe:
Ranger: Dye Inks
Various circle dies from my stash
Hero Arts: Stamp & Cut Happy set for sentiments and the mini circles


I die cut two pierced squares, one in white and one in blue using an 
MFT Die-namics Pierced Square Die.  From the white square 
I then die cut the house detail using Clearly Besotted's On The Line die.  
The sentiment stamped in blue is from Clearly Besotted's So Tweet stamp set.  
The die cuts were then adhered together before adding a small red 
die cut heart, covered in Glossy Accents (close up photo on my blog)


 The Silhouette cut file that I started with is edited - 
the hearts were coming out of an old fashioned gramophone.  
I stamped the Clarity Stamps girl, Alice, in its place and gave her a paper pieced dress.  
The sentiment is Paper Smooches.

We hope you enjoy working with these colours and we look forward to seeing
what you create. Please remember to keep your projects clean and simple with 
some yummy white space - maybe even red or blue space!

... and as everyone loves a comment or two we do like to encourage you
to visit some of your fellow entrants and leave some kind feedback.

Happy Crafting!
