Neutrals

Here is a card made for the Less is More challenge week 57 - the colour theme is Neutrals.


Now this one stumped me so I decided to get out all my brown ink pads and have a play. I just used Vintage Photo Distress Ink for the background and then Coffee Archival for the stamping. The main image is from Tim Holtz and the Get Well is an old wooden one, maybe Personal Impressions. I was oh so tempted to add colour but I refrained!!

Thank for taking the time to look!

  1. Lovely card - The floral flourish is beautiful and the sentiment stamp is one I recognise as a great stalwart as it is a clear text with a pretty border all in one

  18. A very classy and elegant card Elaine - love the flourish stamp and the way you have placed it. The Get Well sentiment is a PSX (Personal Stamp Exchange) stamp - you don't see a lot of them for sale now. I have 3 of their swirly sentiments, bought years ago, and have used them a lot. Love them!
