Feeling the need for colour....

...in my life.

After last weeks White on White challenge and spending every evening making mainly white wedding invitations, I had a desperate need to add some colour. I have made a second card for Less is More today and I`m pretty sure it won`t be the last.
This was how I was going to enter it.
Very plain with just the image ( Papertrey Fancy Flourishes) stamped in Bahama blue and heat embossed with clear EP.
The sentiment is by Flourishes stamps also in Bahama Blue.
I`ve added a few pearls to finish off.

But then I decided to add a ribbon and bow. Took me about an hour to get the bow right then changed my mind. Didn`t like the bow one bit.

So back to the drawing board or, to be precise, the scoring board and I scored 3 lines along the top giving me both a heat and a dry embossed card.
Not quite sure which I prefer now...
What do you think?















I have at least one more card in the pipeline so stay tuned.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  15. Love the colour you chose. I prefer the second one as I think the image is too low on the second one giving a large gap (just been picky really!).

  23. Hi Lynne, the first one gets my vote - absolutely stunning! Whenever I see your LIM cards I always ask myself why I didn't think of something like that! xx

  24. If I were to choose, it would be the first card.. simple elegance. I much prefer the unbroken card surface, nothing to take the eye away from that beautiful flourish!
    Thanks so much once more.

  25. the first card is just stunning xxx

  26. Personally I prefer the first. The plain area at the top draws the eye downwards to the gorgeous flourish, which is so elegant. Whenever I see Bahama Blue ink it reminds me I need to use it more as it's such a gorgeous colour.

    Well done Lynne, a stunning card :-)

  30. Definately the plain one for me - I think the straight lines fight against the soft curves of the swirls....
