Less Is More #340 - Tropical Fruits

Hello there. Well, here we are in the first week of August already - boy that time is sure whizzing past this year.

As it is the first challenge of the month we have a new sponsor at the Less is More challenge and it is


It is also our colour challenge this week


Hmmmm.... I totally forgot it was 'colour' week and made something with images of tropical fruits! Never mind, at least it automatically uses the colours of tropical fruits too!

Luckily some of the rest of the design team made cards with the colours but without the tropical fruit images so there is some fab inspiration on the challenge blog for you.

Tropical fruits

This is a stamp set that I have had for a while but haven't had the chance to use yet. Simple stamping and colouring on the base card with a sentiment on a raised panel is all that was needed for this card.

STAMPS: Hero Arts Lia Griffith (CL930), Clearly Besotted Laugh out loud sentiment
INK: Archival ink in olive green
OTHER: Distress Markers in a variety of citrus colours, string, 3d foam, White Linen Card.


Well that's it from me for a couple of weeks now. I am travelling back home to Portugal today with my two eldest grandchildren so I've decided to take a couple of weeks break to enjoy my time with them.

Hope you get the chance to join in with the challenge this week.
See you after my holidays.

Glad it wasn't just me...I was think of actual fruit too and not the colors...but in the end it worked out great! Your card is perfect!

It seems that we almost all think more about tropical fruits rather than the colours themselves! But as you said, they also use the colours ! And yours are especially gorgeous and your panel of fruits looks so yummy ! Love your very CAS design with this huge blank part ! Enjoy your time with your grandchildren ! xx

Loving that stamped background, and a great idea to stamp the images in green too, a lovely effect. Love this classic layout too. I hope you're having a wonderful break xx
