Less Is More #445 - Pale Blue and Yellow

Oh my goodness, summer has certainly arrived in the Algarve! We've had scorchio temperatures of around 32-34 C this past week. It was a blessing to escape into my cool, shady craft room and play with some inks and stamps, so I made a second card for the Less is More challenge with the theme of pale blue and yellow. Two cards to show this week.

The first one above, a card for the men, was simply stamped in a pale blue ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, then the bubbles were coloured with Zigs and a bit of yellow blended on the bottom corner before attaching the panel to a yellow card blank.

STAMPS:   Visible Image Jazz It Up
INKS:   Prism Inks (blue lagoon)
PENS:  Zigs (lemon yellow, yellow, bright yellow) 
OTHER: Wow! clear gloss embossing powder, White and Yellow card.


This second card is another one simply stamped in a pale blue and yellow ink, with a tiny bit of coloured pencil work. I went a bit overboard on the tiny gems, which is why it is down as a second card for this challenge.

STAMPS:   Uniko Originally Organic Additions
INKS:   Prism Inks (arctic mist, canary yellow) the pale blue was overstamped 3 times to make it dark enough
PENS:  Polychromos Pencils (107 Cadmium Yellow, 154 Cobalt Turquoise)
OTHER: WHite and blue card, 3d foam, tiny gems

Please head on over to the challenge blog for some fantastic inspiration from the design team


I'll sign off for now 👋 but I really hope to see you again soon.

Just checking LIM to see what the challenge is and came to your Jazz it up card. First reaction “That is brilliant”. Just thought you would like to know. In fact they are both great cards. X

I just love that jazz man image, and I love the way it looks in the challenge colors. Fabulous. I think I went a little over the CAS line with the stenciling on my card too - I get what you mean about the bling. It's still a beautiful make!
