Black With A Touch Of White

Morning LIMettes... Can you believe it's Saturday and the first week of the month which means we have a new sponsor and a new colour challenge at Less Is More ! We are delighted to have Lili of the Valley as our sponsor this month.

Visit our website

Anyhow onto the new challenge. This week we want you to use the 
COLOUR OF YOUR FRONT DOOR!
My front door is black with white trim so I've made both my cards mainly black. I'll be back with a  photo later as I forgot to take one :-(


For my first card I simple used some fabulous ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and cut out a V in each piece.  The Sentiment is from Stampin up.  Nice and simple.

.
My second card uses a technique fairly new to me... I have given the chalkboard effect a go just once before but I thought these fabulous new stamps from the new release at Lili Of The Valley were perfect for it.  This is from the Statement Stamps Set..Just To Say. I simply stamped in in craft white ink from Stampin Up and then once dry rubbed in some white pastel chalk. The ribbon is from Stampin Up also.

I'm demonstrating over at Lili Of The Valley today at the open day, so I hope if you are in the area you can pop over and say hello!!

Have a great Saturday
