Guest Designing at Less is More #325

Hello and happy Saturday everyone! 

Today I have a special card to share with you! Awesome DT ladies from Less is More challenge invited me to be their guest, after my card was showcased at the Less is More 6th Birthday Challenge.  Of course I said YES! Less is More challenge is one of my favorite challenges and is the challenge where I've got my very first recognition with this card :)! 

This week is a Recipe week and the cue card says STRIPE! 



I like to add stripes in my card as a background. But this time I wanted to give the stripes some meaning more than being a background. So I made grassy hills with my stripes. 


I used a stripe from a border stamp set by Waffle Flower. I stamped them in ombre green using Crystal Garden Collection inks by The Ton. I stamped yellow daffodil image from A Bunch stamp set by Penny Black along the way and continued to stamp the stripe after masking the flower image. I used for daffodil copic-friendly Caviar hybrid ink to color them with Copic markers. I added some detail to the flowers using Polychromos pencils and corrected some part of the stripes with pencils too.
The sentiment is from Penny Black. I stamped it on a yellow striped clear acetate strip using black StazOn and mounted it in the same angle as the stripe on the card. To finish off I added some dots using yellow and green Nuvo drops, unfortunately I added some smear of it too :). I obviously need more practice with Nuvo drops!

I hope you enjoyed my card and join in the striped fun at Less is More!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Beautiful card TaeEun. Love the way the thickness and colours of the green stripes change to represent the hills as that adds so much interest to the card. Those daffodils are gorgeous and perfectly coloured. Thanks so much for being a fab guest designer for us xx
