Less is More colour challenge #288 - Blue and Brown

BLUE AND BROWN...colours that look fabulous together but are a combination I rarely use...until this week when I spotted the Less Is More challenge theme #288 and decided to make a little butterfly range. The LIM challenges are always great for taking me in a direction not often visited and I always enjoy them.

I used  SMALL BUTTERFLY and ONE SECOND stamps , both from Stampotique Originals to create this postcard, card and ATC.

Hope you like them. The Butterfly is very versatile (I stamped it flat, painted it, left it black, cut it out, cut it in half and stamped more than once to create a faded look.).







The greetings card, just the top part of the wings are 3D





The ATC, watercoloured.




The faded effect card (although the left wing on the middle image didnt quite stamp evenly, sadly ....booo). The top butterfly is totally 3d.




MESSAGE TO LIMETTES.

...I checked the guidelines of the challenge as I was unsure on this occasion which photo to add to the link page on the challenge site...I've added the top main pic as I see them as a little set, but if this doesn't meet the guidelines please Limettes let me know and I will re-post one of the single creations on to the links page instead.

Thanks - Jo  x

Wow! Amazing illusion of movement in your stunning cards Jo. That butterfly looks incredible and the sentiment is so unusual too but the perfect accompaniment for the image. Love it. Thank you so much for joining us at Less is More this week.
