hello... friend...

Hello!!  Popping in with a little card that I put together earlier for a couple of challenges:  Freshly Make Sketches and Less is More.  When I saw Karren's  fabulous sketch this week I immediately thought of my Concord & 9th Layering Leaves die set.  I was going to use the feather/leaf image from the C9 Give Thanks stamp set, but decided instead to do some simple watercoloring with my ZIGs and a waterbrush.  I'm also going to enter this in the current  Less is More challenge to use three adjacent colors on the color wheel.  I used yellow, light green and medium green.  The light green is hard to see, but it is there!!  Less is More is celebrating their 6th birthday!!   So amazing!!!  Congrats on six fantastic years of challenge and to many more to come!! There was a time when I didn't miss a Less is More challenge, but life changes and now I only play occasionally, but it is still one of my favorite challenges!!  The panel was trimmed down and the sentiment (from the C9 Layers of Love stamp set) was stamped using black ink.   I die cut the leaf three times from white cardstock.  The leaves were adhered to the watercolored panel using Multi Matte Medium.  I adhered the panel to a white cardstock base and then added some sequins to a little finishing touch.


Hope you have a wonderful day!!

Supplies:  white cardstock, Ranger watercolor paper; Stamps and dies:  Concord & 9th; Ink:  VersaFine Onyx Black; Sequins; ZIG Clean Color markers
