It's a beautiful sunny morning, and I feel pleased with the card I came up with today!
I took the sketch from
...and decided that I would like to use some crocus dies by Alexandra Renke as the the vertical elements. I used a piece of card that I had smooshed some purple inks onto for the die cuts and daubed a little distress ink onto the stems. I rather like the random dispersal of colour achieved with the smooshing technique. It took me a few die cuts to be happy with the colouring for the sentiment, some had too much white, some not enough, but I was quite pleased with the final piece. The ones I wasn't too keen on are stacked beneath the final layer. The die is by The Stamp Market.
Not having entered into my old creation "Less is More" for ages and not often using purple as a colour choice, I thought that I would add another card to their challenge this time.
The DT is SO talented and the standard of CAS cards submitted is incredibly high... due I am sure to the superb inspiration of the designers!
Have a great day everyone!
