Waltzing Mouse meets Less is More

I'm not altogether happy about this card, it's a bit too subtle I think!  I made a one layer card using the doily set from Waltzing Mouse and followed the colourscheme at Less is More.  I tried a new embossing tip that I learned at the NEC on the WOW stand:  I put tiny pinches of spring green over the embossed images, then finished off with white powder.  The background is inked with Sage Green & Spun Sugar; I've added some bling to the doilies and embossed the WM sentiment.  What do you think?

  1. I think subtle is great!
    I haven't thought to try that technique again Anne, I must have a go. It's going to be interesting to experiment with WOW EP colour combos!
    Great job and thanks again.

  5. I love how soft and subtle this is Anne. It looks great with just the gems and if you wanted to embellish it further, perhaps with a single flower or something, you could! Vicky x
