Less is More Week 40 colour challenge


The challenge this week for the Limettes is a colour one based around the bonfire night theme.

Our first week of the month is another Colour challenge and redolent of bonfire flames we have chosen
Red and Orange
Check out the wonderful inspiration on the blog that Chrissie has created. Orange is not a colour that I use and I was a bit stuck as to what to do. After several attempts using different stamps and getting ink everywhere I cleared my desk and found this stamp lurking at the bottom of a pile of bits and pieces!! 



I used a square base card and masked off a triangle and sponged colour in with spiced marmalade DI. I inked the stamp with SU rose red and also the sentiment. I coloured a brad to match and attached the sentiment with foam dots. I'm quite pleased with the outcome but still wouldn't use this colour combo by choice:)
Thanks for visiting and the lovely comments that you leave they are much appreciated.

The colours seem to suit the image you chose brilliantly... I agree it's not an easy colour combo to work with but you've nailed it here.
Thanks so much

It's great to see crafters experimenting with different images other than leaves or sunsets...(unlike me!)
Your dancing couple look great in fiery red and the triangle is the perfect bkgd shape to accent them :) Fab card Valerie.
