Less is More Growing Green

Today the Less is More Challenge is Button or Ribbon (or plurals thereof).

I dipped into my ribbons bag and found my delicious thick velvety purple and lilac ribbon which came off a beauty set several Christmas's ago, and that was my starting point. Out came the Growing Green set and 'Hey Presto!' this card came into its own.


The opposite corners of the 6" square card were rounded, and the leaf sprig stamped on it in Certainly Celery. The small flower was stamped twice on spare WWhite card in Orchid Opulence, and blended with an aqua painter ( I've been calling this tool a water pen, but there you are..you learn something new every day!) and the centers dotted with Crushed Curry. The pointed flower was stamped twice in Rich Razzleberry and again blended before being layered on top of each other. These were then stuck over the leaf sprigs and the bow added, before some extra stems were drawn in CCelery coming from under the bow.

Recipe: Stamps - Growing Green
             Inks - Orchid Opulence,Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery,Crushed Curry
             Card - Whisper White
             Stash - Ribbon
 
I hope you like this simple little card as much as I do.

Thanks for dropping by, and I love it if you do come by again soon

  3. Fabulous ribbon - never throw anything away! These stamps are so versatile aren’t they. Rounding opposite corners on the card gives it a stylish shape and extending the stems of the fronds and flowers balances it out perfectly.
