Less Is More Challenge Week 31

Wasn’t able to join in with last weeks challenge over at the Less Is More site and haven’t managed to do much for this weeks challenge as been too tired and got another cold but thought i should try to do at least one card.  The challenge is to use anything metallic on our CAS cards.

Chose to use a Tim Holtz flower made from two of his dies, Tattered Florals and Flourishes.Used tv magazine for the paper which was embossed using a Craft Concepts folder called Vine. Coloured the pages using DI Barn Door and added a large pearlised brad. Have alternated the petals using mirror card and very flimsy magazine paper which helps to give both durability and shape to the petals.  Used a flourish as a flower stem. Decided not to use a sentiment on the card just yet as might make a set of notelets instead of a single card. Might change the size of the base card as after looking at this image the flower seems a little too big for the base.  Think a square card would be better, what do you think… ?

Hope the card is suitable for this weeks challenge and will try to get around to commenting in the next couple of days.

Thanks for dropping by, take care:-)

  1. Great flower... my thought on card shape and size etc. would be...
    Larger, square card with the flourishy bit emerging from behind the flower, towards a corner, but the other way around acting more as a leaf rather than a stem.
    It's a great mix of papers.
    Thanks so much and hope you're feeling better soon.

  3. Great to see you back this week and with a real stunner of a flower too! The flourish works as a stem but I love Chrissie's idea for using it as a leaf. Take care, Vx

  9. Great idea using the magazine paper, it looks very effective with the mirror card. It would look super on your card even without the stem. x
