My participation in the Less is More challenges has been much depleted of late and I really wanted to try and enter some more as the ' little tasks' set DO make me think!
I was determined last Friday that whatever the challenge was (even if it was ACETATE!!!!LOL), I would take part. How Admirable!!!!!!!
By Saturday night when I got round to reading the challenge I was regretting my rash announcement that this week was definitley the one where I would find time............ I mean....... red and ORANGE????????
I am not an 'orange' person- the occasional clementine or satsuma maybe but otherwise orange is not in my colour or taste palette! (and I don't like Tango either!!)
So consequently it has taken me three days to finally come up with something that I thought was passable enough to submit. The other entries are all amazing (-aren't they always???) and these talented people bring out such feelings of inadequacy!!!!
This DL card shape is something of a change for me, but it seemed appropriate for the stamps. The stamp is from Clarity and although I bought it about 3 years ago, this is the first time it's seen any ink!! (Go on, admit it, you've all got 'virgin' stamps in the drawer!!!)
I used Spiced Marmalade and Barn Door Distress Inks and some clear embossing powder. The dark red strip has a velvety texture although this hasn't shown up very well in the pic - I think it's called 'suede paper'. I added a couple of sparkly gems, the sentiment was pc generated and the card base is linen cardstock.
