Neapolitan card

Hi there friends, how's your weekend going
so far? Mine is another busy one again I 
fear. Anyway I am back to show you my 
latest 'Less is More' card.
It's a colour challenge this week and...

This is what I came up with after a spot 
of thinking/looking at stamps/playing
with various ideas etc. 
I water coloured pieces of card  then 
randomly die cut the edges of the stamped
 sentiment , using an edge die I have. I die
 cut a few leaves too and layered it 
on my card. 
Enjoy your week whatever you have 
planned ;)
ps. I will try and include the little handbag/pearl 
earrings I made to go with my earlier makes.
Also a few photo's of our Lake District trip
 recently. If I can get them to post this time 
that is!
White Linen card
Cream water colour card (very old)
(Looks white here but it is cream!)
Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
TH Distress inks
Penny Black Words of Kindness stamp
Paper smooches leaf dies
Sue Wilson edge die (for sentiment bit)
Gems from stash

I made these pearl earrings as a gift to go inside the mini handbag

place to visit if you get a chance.

This card is superb Viv! It has such an arty look to it with the randomness of the die cut sentiment and the fab water colour areas. Such a lovely sentiment too. All in all it's a delicate, dreamy and really pretty. Glad to see that sweet handbag and your lovely earrings too (clever lady!) and your photos of the Lake District look so serene. Thanks so much for popping your card in at Less is More xx

A feast of loveliness here, Viv! Your card is absolutely gorgeous, so artistic and really eye catching with the lovely splattered look and interesting shape of the layered panel.
