Less is More in Chocolate!

The theme on the Less is More blog at the moment is for neutral colours. I should have been working on my DT cards for March this afternoon, but got sidetracked into fiddling around with bits and bobs. I had a couple of scraps of rough kraft card that aren't any good for colouring with Copics and rather than throw them in the bin I got to thinking what I could do. On one piece I've stamped the Elusive Images daisy flower then coloured in with my pencils: ivory, brown ochre, raw umber and burnt umber - then cut out the flower and inked the edges with brown chalk ink. I ran the bigger piece through a bubbles embossing folder in the bug, then inked with Versamagic chalk inks in Sahara Sand and Jumbo Java, tied some twine around it, matted with dark brown card and then matted onto plain caramel card. I've stamped the greeting, added the little butterfly charm on a tag, fixed the daisy with 3d foam pads and finished with the Marianne diecut leaves. I knew it wasn't going to be big enough for a standard card size so instead I created a little thank you gift .. .. ..

So what do you think, is it less enough for the challenge, although the chocolate is certainly a little bit more - it says so on the wrapper!

The ABC challenge blog are up to the letter 'K' and have a kraft challenge so I'll enter my creation with them too.

  3. This is a lovely card Annie... albeit a little short of white space... we normally like a little 'less' as it were... but it's great.
    Thanks so much
