Less Is More (LIM) have challenged crafters to not only make a clean, simple card, but to use the color of the crafter's eyes as the main color on the card. You can use one more color, and as my eyes are NOT orange, you can see that they are a dark blue edging toward purple at times.
My card uses a Halloween image colored only with two Copics, YR04 & V04. The textured paper is a violet blue, which doesn'y show up very well in this photo, and I simply punched the tor right corner for an accent, diecut my image with my Epic Six using Nestabilities Labels Four, and added an orange ribbon.
This is not usually my style and i had to work at not adding embellishments and Stickles and everything but the kitchen sink onto it, but it came out how I wanted it to come out, clean and simple.
If you are finding yourself pouring on the embellishments, take time to check out Less Is More Challenge Blog to get your simplicity mojo on!
It's interesting in that ove at the Corrosive Challenge Blog, they are offering a very different challnge, yet my card fits in perfectly! Their theme this week is PURPLE PASSION, and they ask that you make a card featuring the color purple and one other color! You can see how well my card fits their challenge guidelines as well, since I used only purple and orange. For some great inspiration and challenging tasks, check them out HERE.
I like both cards equally well, and am glad I can give this second card to someone I love.
Happy Birthday, Kathy!!
