 This week's Less is More Challenge is to use mostly teal.  I LOVE teal :)  as you can see from my shiny new kitchen - the splashbacks are very Marmite - and yes, I love them!

I decided to break into a prized piece of paper for the challenge, created on a hot day last summer with the lovely Wendy Gale, who used to own Stamp Attic.  We started with a piece of tissue paper, approx. A4, adding Paper Artsy Fresco paints, stencilling and a bit of stamping. I loved the effect, but have been reluctant to use it, it has been sitting on my desk and just getting the occasional stroke...


I cut a strip that has mostly teal, then decided to tear the edges as I preferred it.  Added SU Swirly Bird diescuts and Mama Elephant sentiment (stamped and die cut) to my tent fold card.  Now I've broken into my beloved paper, perhaps I should use some more...  what do you think?


  1. Ooh, I LIKE this, a tissue paper masterboard? It rocks this teal challenge


  2. Oh Anne I always love to see your cards pop up in the LIM gallery and this one is a real treat on our teal challenge! Great detail from your master piece of tissue paper and I'm also thinking you should have some fabric made up just the same for a window blind to match those awesome vibrant splashbacks! They really are something and so fresh and on trend! As always thanks for playing at Less is More and hope all good with you. x

  3. This is absolutely lush! The tissue paper is soooooo gorgeous, I don't think I could have cut anything off it at all! Such a stunning card, really creative and full of texture and interest. I love it! Great to see you with us at Less is More! :)

  4. What a stunning piece of artwork your tissue paper piece is Anne. Can definitely see why it has taken so long to use it, but That goodness you did because your card is stupendous. Your teal backsplashes look incredible! Marmite - no way! Everyone must love them. Great to see you this week at Less is More xx

  5. I am glad that you cut in to that beautiful tissue paper for us at Less is More, Anne! Love your design and your fabulous kitchen...I can definitely see that you love teal :) Great to see you at Less is More!

  6. Artistic & beautiful! Yes, indeed--use that gorgeous paper for some more projects! Your kitchen is wonderful!
