Tangerine and Olive ...

Good evening ... I hope all is good with you!  I'm popping by to share a card that I made some time ago but had forgotten all about until I spotted the challenge at "Less is More" - it is a colour challenge - to use tangerine and olive.

This is a wedding card that I made at the request of my daughter ... you may be wondering how I came up with, what appears to be, a random combination of elements!!  The reason for the design is that my daughter was making the wedding cake - three tiers - one chocolate, one lemon drizzle and a top layer of a victoria sponge which she decorated with orange slices and bay leaves.  So my brief was oranges and leaves!  This is the cake:

She was delighted with the card and the wedding party soon demolished the cake!!

I used:
A free circle stamp from the Craft Stamper Magazine
STAMPlorations - Leaf Stencil
                           - Crazy Running Stitch Rectangle die
Molding paste
Distress inks - Spiced marmalade
PaperArtsy - Hey Pesto Acrylic paint

"Less is More" #375



  1. Oh, I REALLY like this, fab work
