Less Is More - Week 9 - A touch of red

It's already week 9 over on the Less Is More challenge blog. This week is a Colour Challenge week, and the challenge is to create a card with "a touch of red".



All the stamps I've used are from Waltzingmouse Stamps Teeny Trees set. It's a really versatile set with the tree trunks, leaves and apples, among other things, all as individual stamps. I've stamped the trees with Memento Inks and Versafine. I added some Glossy Accents on top of the apples to make them look really juicy and round.

And of course I did two things I do with most of my cards at the moment - wrapped some baker's twine around it and rounded the bottom corners of the card!


Hope everyone is having a good weekend and enjoying some sunshine! It's been gorgeous here in London!
