Red, White and Blue.

Good morning, a better day today here, we have a much nicer dog walk this morning....and the garden always looks better when the sun smiles on it...

It is that day of the week for the Less Is More Blog Challenge...

This week is Colour Challeng Week,

Red, White and Blue....

And here is my take on the theme...

I am thoroughly enjoying joining in with this challenge and it is a great way to use those stamp, stencils that you haven't used for a while....let's face it ...we all have go on ....find a stamp that is feeling left out and join in.....

I started with a piece of Gelli card and a moon mask...

Then added some sky.....

Next came a landscape , all with torn paper and blue ink...Then came the stamp....this beautiful Edelweiss stamp from Clarity ( new design club stamp 89)

I wanted to keep the flower mainly blue so some gentle watercolour ing with Distress Inks.

And then the all important touch of Red,

I stamped ' Love' from the remountable Letter Box Words set....I do use these so much..

This was then simply added to a card blank...and a small red gem finishes the whole design off....

And I know just the man that I am going to send this too....

Thanks for looking in today...I am off now to catch up on some ironing....have a good day whatever you are up too....

Love and hugs...
