Bedroom Flowers

This week's colour challenge at Less is More is an interesting one - its to use the colours in your bedroom

Now those who know me well are probably expecting a card in shades of teal, but my bedroom is actually green with hints of chocolate brown!

Thanks to Stephanie's super speedy delivery the gorgeous new stamps I ordered yesterday were the perfect choice to play with for a chocolate lime creation.  I used her new gorgeous Nouveau Flower stamps and used Lemon Grass Ink from Avery Elle and Pearlescent Chocolate from Tsukineko.   Paired with a strip of washi tape as a side panel - the main design is popped up for added dimension but that does't show in the photo.

I've batoned down the hatches today in anticipation of the storms coming this afternoon while I nurse my poorly cat who thanks to a local tom cat who needs neutering has a nasty abscess which could lead to her having her tail amputated :(


  1. Beautiful card, I love the colour choices.

  2. This is fantastic Tara and can't believe you've cracked open and inked up those gorgeous stamps from CBS so quickly. Wham Bam! Inked, created, photographed and blogged!
    Well done and thanks for taking part

  3. Yes...I admit I was one who thought there would be teal there somewhere. Your actual colours are fabulous, love green and brown together and your card shows them off beautifully.
