Less is More - Week 92

Well hello everyone.

I'm sorry I've been absent for a while, life has just been so busy recently that I haven't been able to post, but I'm back!  I'm not really supposed to be here now, I took a day off work to tidy my craft desk, I'm so ashamed of the state it's got into, but a quick post can't hurt, can it?

The Less is More challenge this week is a colour challenge and it's Pink.  I actually don't mind pink, it's one of my favourite colours, just behind purple which is the the best colour in the whole wide world.

So here are my offerings.  Both dies are Memory Box (what did I do without them?) and the greetings are Hero Arts and Marion Emberson.

This one was coloured by adding a sheet of vellum behind the diecut aperture and colouring with Marvy le Plume pens.  It's amazing how much the vellum mutes the colours beautifully.  The back looks hideous!

These next two are cut from the same piece of pink card, but for some reason this photo came out much bluer and this is the best I can do with my limited knowledge of photo tweaking.  I layered the pink card onto a piece of white card before die-cutting to give it strength as the pink card was fairly thin.

This one had a layer of sticky tape runner behind the butterflies so I could add the glitter.

Thanks for looking, I will try to be more regular with my postings.

Have a good weekend



  1. Hi Pat, that Memory Box die is just lovely. I really like your first card too, great idea putting the vellum behind and colouring it. Sue

  2. How pretty are these cards... makes me want to have memory box.
