This is the first Saturday of the month, so the challenge at Less is More is a color challenge. The challenge this week is FIRE. We can use any colors that can be seen in fire with any additional shades being kept to neutral or metallic shades. I made a couple of cards for this challenge. Don't know which is my favorite...I really kinda like them both!
The stamp I used on this first card is from Hero Arts. I stamped it in Memento black then colored it with Copics - Y17, YR18, R46 and R59. I added just a touch of the clear Wink of Stella to the petals. Then sentiment is from PTI. I added Versamark to the edges of the front of the card base and heat embossed it in gold. It would have been a quick card if I only colored a little faster!
This is the card I thought of when I saw the challenge for this week. I thought I had a large leaf die...and I did...it just had a stem connected to it that is part of the die and I couldn't figure out a way to cut the leaf and not the stem. It would have been perfect if the stem was attached to the leaf, but it wasn't. This was a really old die from back in the Quikutz days! So, I decided I could do basically the same thing with my Cameo. I designed the card panel with the sentiment (from a quote I found on Pinterest) and leaf right where I wanted them, then I printed the sentiment on the card stock, Once I printed the sentiment, I put the card stock through my Cameo and cut the large leaf. I backed it with acetate, then created my shaker card using foam tape. In retrospect, I should have used two layers of the foam tape, because the shaker items are a little snug. I used some small leaves punched from several "fire" colors of card stock, then added a few clear beads. The background for the leaf was made using spray mists in shades of yellow, red, and a touch of gold. I made it large enough to also be a border around the white panel. I adhered the panel to a white card base.
Which card is your favorite? Here's the sentiment I created if you'd like to use it. You should be able to right click on the sentiment and copy the image.
