Less is More ... Colour Challenge

Good morning, it is time for a new challenge at Less is More and it's our 10th Birthday ... every birthday celebration deserves chocolate so we would like you to create a card using the colours of chocolate!!

I've gone with the classic chocolate colour of brown ... not a colour that I often use in my card making.  I have two cards to share both using the same resources.

I began by die cutting a number of circles before stamping and heat embossing a design around the edge. I then added some texture paste to each of the circles before colouring using Brushos.  I then spent far too long trying to decide the layout!!! Some of the circles are flat and others are adhered with foam tape for added dimension.  Finishing off with the sentiment.

The second card was created from leftovers:

A smaller card on a kraft card base but using circles left over from the first card.

I hope you will join in with the challenge ... and remember to check out the blog for more inspiration.

Stay safe and keep crafting!
