Less is More Challenge N°144

I suppose I should really save this post until tomorrow, so that I have something ready for Mags’ Post-Every-Day-In-November challenge…but having made the cards for the Less is More challenge I want to show them off! (Not that I like them that much!)


It was a tricky challenge this week – “Dark background with a Splash of Colour”. There was this inspiration photo too:

but I was devoid of inspiration. Still I sorted through my bits and bobs, and found the shiny copper leaves my SiL sent as part of my wonderful birthday crafty stash…I knew I had a bit of copper water colour paint left, so I created this:


It’s a bit smudgy, as I forgot to let the paint dry (d’oh!) before turning it over. That necessitated the addition of the sentiment


(Roughly translated as “Happiness always”) which I found already written in my box of stuff. You can hardly see the mess, she says hopefully!


It’s alright…but not great. So I tried No 2.

    Oh I do like your inspiration. I find myself utterly obsessed with trees and leaves and branches. You have captured this so well, and I do like the message! I don’t think you’ll be running out of inspiration- creativity breeds the same!
