Less is More - Red & Orange

Really late with the Less is More challenge this week, which is Red & Orange and WOW there are some seriously stunning cards over on the challenge blog. Ended up having a really busy weekend, took my boys into town on Saturday and saw Tin Tin, which was brill, mother came round for dinner on Sunday and she made me plant 60 tulip bulbs in the garden and have just got back from a meeting at number 2 sons school and speaking to colleges so he can make up his mind what he wants to do next year when he finishes................phew...........so thought I best get this card in quick before the week disappears as well.
Used promarkers and Clarity silk card, which I haven't used before with promarkers and the background did get very wet and took a while to dry. I stamped the image on top using Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured the flowers again with promarkers. Did a quick bit of layering and added some gems.

Hope everyone had a fab weekend, will try and get round to some commenting, but have been having some quick peeks at the entries and they are all really lovely, do like this colour combo and will have to use it again :)

Wow! That is one stunning card! I LOVE it! I know what you mean about the Clarity staying wet. Best card I have found was some super smooth from Lavinia Stamps that I picked up at a show
