Kitchen Colours

This card has been made for the Less is More challenge blog for week 283 whose theme is 'Colours of your Kitchen'.

I had a good look at my kitchen and the main colours are Lime Green, Dark and Light Grey & White as depicted in this photo of walls and tiles.

I started with a 5 x 5 inch white square card blank.  I then used the Sizzix Bigshot to cut a postage stamp edged die in pale grey textured card.  This was matted onto another slightly larger diecut square of dark grey card with a stitched edge die.

I then took a leaf, flower and butterfly die and cut this from white card, trimmed the base to fit the smaller matt and coloured this with a lime green alcohol brush marker sticking in place as shown. The butterflies (in three sizes) were left white and positioned as shown before sticking in place.

The sentiment is a stamp from Papertrey Ink which was inked in black Versafine ink and stamped directly on the card blank.

Think I got the colours right and I do like my kitchen colours, they are bright but with a nice contrast.
