Less is More 164 and Dynamic Duos 65

I'm here with another card creation from yesterday - it's not very often that I get the chance to make two cards in one day!!! I guess because my first card was so completely impromptu and so easy too, and made whilst painting with my toddler….

This next card is for the dynamic duos challenge which combines three colours….

and for the Less is more Challenge which funnily enough, also calls for three of something featured on your card. My card features a trio of threes…..three colours, three flowers and three colours of pearls!!

This card was a really simple make, but I hope you still like it.

This card is made using a gorgeous new stamp set from Clearly Besotted called Spring Blooms. I die cut the vase and run it through my big shot machine in a dot embossing folder in order to give depressed dots that I could then add colour to with my spectrum noir markers. This and the tulip heads are popped up on some foam pads to add just a little dimension.

Materials used:
Cardstock - white card from Papermill Direct. turquoise from stash.
Stamps - Spring Blooms (Clearly Bessotted), sentiment from Bright Butterflies (Uniko Studio)
Ink - Hobbycraft jade green, dark purple and fuchsia pink. Spectrum noir markers
Embellishments - pearls (Anita's)

That's all from me today.

  3. What a lovely card that reminds me that spring is on the way! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm just back from your lovely country where I visited my nephew who is attending the University of Edinburgh. I was only there a week and I wish I had more time to travel around. Someday maybe!
