hot and spicy

Hello crafty friends. This post was once again inspired by the LIM challenge. This week it was the colour week and the colour choice was hot and spicy.

Since I'm trying to make Christmas cards, I immediately thought of this silhouette image.

So I got out 4 sparkle pens; yellow, orange, red and brown and created 2 square backgrounds. I spritzed them lightly with water to allow the colours to blend more.

I went round the edges with a black Sharpie pen. The sentiment is by Just Rite and it is clear embossed.

And hence 2 more cards off the list. I wish you could see the sparkle, but that doesn't photograph well or I am not able to take proper pics, lol!

So I would like to enter this card in the:

Simply Less is More challenge - colour: hot and spicy


  1. What a great way to interpret the theme Theresa and the colours highlight the silhouette beautifully, and love the sentiment font. x

  2. Beautiful take on the challenge. Thanks for sharing at Less is More!

  3. As usual stunning cards from you Theresa x

  4. Beautiful Christmas card, Theresa. Love how you used the hot & spicy colours to create a glow effect around that sweet silhouette. I can imagine who shimmery and gorgeous it is IRL. Thank you for joining us this week at Less is More.

  5. Your cards look wonderful Theresa. I love that heavenly halo of light you created with your coloured sparkle pen work and I bet they look amazing up close. A really fab religious card design. I must say that it is a very beautiful font on the sentiment stamp too. Thank you so much for playing along with us at Less is More xx
