Adjacent Colours

This week's Less is More challenge is to use three adjacent colours on the colour wheel.

I chose blue, turquoise, and green from the bottom right corner and made this card:

I used the splotch stamp from SU's Gorgeous Grunge set, then topped it with a die cut dark grey tree and a stamped and heat embossed dark grey sentiment.  I trimmed the panel down and mounted it on fun foam.  I'd also cut the tree out of fun foam to give it more dimension.

It's going off in the mail to my 26 year old nephew - always hard to know what kind of card to make for him.

Stamps - SU Gorgeous Grunge splotch, Rosie's Roadshow sentiment
Ink - Distress Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, and Salty Ocean; Versafine Smokey Grey
Paper - white and dark grey cs
Size - A2
Accessories - Memory Box Coastal Tree die, clear embossing powder, fun foam


  1. Oh, men's cards are so hard to make aren't they?! I think this is great for a guy, and I love that you chose dark grey instead of black.
    Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

  2. This is a great card Susan! The "splodges" in the background add a really bold, contemporary feel and perfectly set off the elegant die cut silhouetted over them. Love the choice of colours too! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  3. What a beautiful way to do the background, Susan! The dark gray die cut tree is perfect with these colors of earth and sky!

  4. LOVE the background with the three colours, Susan. That tree die is gorgeous. xx
