The colour challenge on Less is More this week is Sunset - we are being asked to "use the colours which this word brings to your mind."

I haven't been able to take part in LIM recently as I've been away on holiday so I'm delighted to be back. I created the background with Brushos - this was the first time I've used them and need to do more experimenting. However I do like the vibrant colours.  I cut a circle out of the panel and attached this with foam to give some dimension to the card.

Materials used:-
Brushos - various
Watercolour card
Versa fine ink - onyx black
Inkylicious boating stamps and essential grasses
Nestabilities circle die

Thanks for visiting - now pop over to LIM to see the great designs created by the designers and participants. Margaret


  1. This is a beautiful card Margaret. I bought the same stamp myself a few weeks ago but I haven't used it yet. Many thanks for the inspiration :)

  2. Simply fabulous Margaret - love how you've made a frame for your image with the sunset colours behind
    It works brilliantly and a great take on the challenge.
    Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.

  9. Well, for your first use of Brushos you've done brilliantly. I really need to have a play with mine again as the first couple of outings were a disaster! lol Love your silhouette against the sunset.
    Thanks for sharing with us.
