Less is More #375 – Olive and Tangerine

Hello there!  Hope you were able to clear out some of your bits box in our last challenge.  We are back with a new challenge today at Less is More (LIM).  It’s a colour challenge and the colours are Olive and Tangerine.  Our May winner, Lynne of Cards from Lynne’s Loft, is our wonderful guest.  We welcome back Seven Hills Crafts as our sponsotpr this month.  Be sure to participate in all challenges this month to be in the running for a prize from them.









I will admit this colour combo was challenging for me.  I finally settled on colouring these lilies as Tiger Lilies for my card.  Stamped the flowers with Memento black ink on Neenah cardstock, masking in between.  Coloured with green and orange Copic markers.  Black heat embossed the sentiment with clear glitter embossing powder.



For a bit of interest, framed it by die cutting it with a stitched rectangle.  Die cut four more rectangles from black scraps and stacked them for dimension.  Finished with clear shimmer on the flowers.
