Less is more pastels challenge

 
I really look forward to this challenge each Saturday as it always gets me thinking of ways to use my stash. This weeks attempt has used an image stamp and sentiment stamp I have had for ages and not sure where I got them from.
  • Acrylic stamps
  • brilliance ink for image, sentiment and to edge card and mats
  • printed backing paper
  • panduro ribbon - back oinked with brilliance to match image
  • nesties for smaller mats
  • sissix back frame die
  • cuttle bug swiss dots folder used to deboss images
I am not sure if the balance is quite right but have gone with it as I have discovered I really like brilliance inks.

Sunday have added some more ribbon to balance that out a bit - thanks for comment Chrissie it confirmed what I was thinking but worried aout it being more rather than less if you know what I mean!!

  3. I'm really glad that you are enjoying our challenges so much Bea.
    This is a cute card, it's interesting that you have used the embossing from the Swiss dots folder on the de-bossed side.
    I think that if you are going to use the ribbon on the diagonal across the corner, the angle of it should match that of the sides of the Nesties.
    Lovely pastel card!
    See you next time!
