colourwheel

Hello there. When I was looking at some challenge blogs, I found this one over the Less is More blog.
They are celebrating their 6th birthday and they will be celebrating it for the whole month.



The current challenge is to use 3 adjacent colours of the colour wheel. I made 3 shaker cards that I thought would fit the bill as the backgrounds were made with different shades of distress inks. The first uses blues, then orange and yellow and the last red, orange and yellow.


I tried to use seed beads that reflected the same colours as far as possible. The dies are by Sue Wilson, apart from the numbers that are from a Tim Holtz sizzix set.


I also thought that the design was very CAS and so it would be eligible for the LIM challenge. I'll wait and see.


I would like to enter these cards in the following challenges:

Less is more - use 3 adjacent colours
Country View challenges - under 30 mins
QKR Stampede - anything goes with a twist (not using Twist)

  8. Loving these shaker cards Theresa and don't those die cut words look so cool with the fab distress ink backgrounds! You've chosen some gorgeous shades to work with but it must have been difficult getting the seed beads to match. These are such fun! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at Less is More xx
