Normal service is now resumed from us here at Less is More after our extended challenge over the past fortnight whilst members of the DT were otherwise engaged with holidays and the recent retreat. Today's challenge is a colour theme which is to use brown and blue. They are not colours that I typically use together and I was interested to see what I could do with them.
Here are a couple of examples - all one layer as I couldn't remember if this was one layer week (it is next week in case you wondered!).
First up I used a beautiful stamp from Clarity which I have had for ages and never inked up! I stamped it in coffee archival ink and coloured with pencils. It took me a little while but was very relaxing :)
This card is using another (new to me) stamp from Woodware. I love the simple flowers and again, I coloured with pencils. I like how CAS this card is.
Finally, I stamped and masked a butterfly and inked up a dotty stencil behind it. The butterfly itself is softly watercoloured with the same distress inks (Broken China and Stormy Skies, I think).
I hope you like my ideas for using brown and blue together. I am sure that you can come up with something much better and the DT have lots of fabulous designs to share too over at Less is More.
Before I go, I also ought to mention that we are sponsored by the fabulous Seven Hills Crafts this month. Tara has the absolute best range of US stamps and brands in store and a brilliant store blog with inspiration from the talented DT every day!
Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by,
