Less Is More?

I am not usually the CAS type.  I like my glitter and my dimension and flowers and other embellishment goodies.  Every now and then though, I'll try to scale things back a bit and see what I can come up with. I really like not keeping myself in a box for too long, so this card was good for me.  I couldn't decide on color schemes, so you'll see another similar one in a few days.  I have to say I'm not wholeheartedly sure if this style is me or not.  I think sometimes I try too hard.


I used a watercolor background and TBH my inspiration came from just playing with the die.  I kept cutting feathers and they were piled on the floor and this card was born.

Also - My TIP for Top Tip Tuesday is this: If you're wet-embossing a background and you make a mistake, just cover it up with a die cut!  That's what I did here, and you can't even tell where I missed stamping. :)


Love this color against the background, don't you?

I want to enter a few challenges:
Thanks so much for looking and happy crafting.  Laters!!
