Hey there!! Here with a card for this week's Less is More challenge, as well as this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge. This week at LIM the challenge is a color one and in honor of Guy Fawkes Day Chrissie (who is holding down the LIM fort by herself this as Mandi is away) has asked us to use the colors of red and orange on our cards (two of the colors in fireworks). The challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to go "Over the Edge".
My card base is 5.5" by 4" and the stamped piece is 2" x 4.25". By trimming that quarter inch off the width of the card base, but leaving the stamped piece 4.25" you still end up with a card that will still fit inside a standard A2 envelope even though part of the piece is "over the edge". The stamps are from Penny Black. I did have to use one other color since my flower has a stem, but hopefully that is okay with Chrissie! The image was colored with Copic markers, trimmed out and adhered using foam dimensionals. A few orange pearls were added to bring in more orange.
Supplies: Cardstock: PTI white; SU! Cherry Cobbler; Stamps: Penny Black; Ink: SU! Cherry Cobbler; Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers (YR02, YR04, YR07 & YG21); Hero Arts orange pearls
