Yay! It's our 6th Birthday at Less is More and we will be celebrating for the whole month!
a new look challenge blog,
new badges for the winner & showcases
4 sponsors - one for each week in February
4 guest designers - one for each week in February
and 4 winners too (all announced at the same time at the end of the month)!
I do hope you will all come and join in the fun.
So, for birthday week #1 we are sponsored by:
and the lovely Kylie is our guest designer. Please take a trip over to her blog if you haven't already as she has made a fabulous card for the challenge.
What is the challenge? Week 1 means it is colour week and we want to see you
use 3 adjacent hues on the colour wheel.
Here is a picture of the colour wheel so you can check that I haven't cheated!
The rest of the design team have waved magic wands too and come up with some awesome inspiration for you. Do take a look at their work by clicking HERE
I have 2 cards to share with you today.
1) Hot Hues
This is one of my favourite combinations. I adore hot colours together on cards so I have gone for the red orange and yellow hues in distress stains pounced together onto wet watercolour card. I also love silhouettes as well as getting all washy with distress stains so I am really happy with this card!
STAMPS: Happy Little Stampers Mix Mash set (sentiment)
Stampers Anonymous mini bouquet set (flowers)
DISTRESS STAINS: Candied apple, spiced marmalade and squeezed lemonade
EMBOSSING POWDER: WOW! Opaque Bright White
INKS: Black soot distress ink, Versamark Clear
OTHER: Watercolour Paper, Vellum, 3d Foam, Inkssentials opaque white pen, Ranger distress sprayer
I'd like to enter this into:
Inky Chicks #78 - Clean and Simple
Ike's World - Be You (make something that speaks from your heart and soul)
2) Blue and Greens
This card moves around the colour wheel to the next 3 hues of colours, the greens and a turquoisy blue. A really simple card to make that is oh-so-CAS and is pretty unisex.
DIES: X-cut mini sentiment die 'Just for you'
DISTRESS MARKERS: peacock feathers, mowed lawn twisted citron
OTHER: White linen card, 3d Foam, glue
I'd like to enter this one into:

My new look blog.
I have also taken this opportunity to update my blog template. It's still a bit of a work in progress but I think I've made some big improvements so far. Ideally I want it to be really de-cluttered so I'm trying to streamline everything.
I've made a nifty little page called Categories with clickable picture icons to take you to different pages. (ha ha! I'm pretty pleased with myself about that!) I may copy that idea across to other pages now.
I've tried a slightly different post layout with larger pictures and just a list of items used rather than the full card-making instructions.
Let me know what you think - is this way better?
