Less Is More week 118 Colour




Hello everyone, this card is for Less Is More, which is a colour challenge to use two opposite colours from the colour wheel.


I used a green marker to scribble onto an acrylic stamping block, lightly misted with water and stamped onto linen card for added interest. The poppy stamp, which is my favourite flower (apart from roses) is from Oh So Lovely set by Stampin' Up! water-coloured with SU Real red marker which I ran around the edge to give some colour without adding an extra layer. 

Thank you for looking.
