Less is more - color scheme


This is the color inspiration photo for this week's challenge over at the blog Less is More, which can be found here.


And this is my very simple CAS card which I made with three distress markers; Tea dye, spun sugar and antique linen.


Flower stamp is Darkroom doors, sentiment is Crafty Individuals.
A CAS card is not easy for me to do and it took me several times to stamp it to my liking. Here is what I did with the panels I wasn't happy with:


I just make a grid and have two cards.


Have a lovely weekend.
Jacqueline

    Thank you for sharing the Stormie Omartian book on your blog; I agree it's the best book I've read on praying for my hubby. I met Stormie years ago, she is a genuinely lovely person.

  16. These are really beautiful. Your colors choices are so fabulous. I recently experimented with an idea and didn't like the results, but I'm turning it into inchies and banners to use on some cards, thanks to your inspiration.
