Firework colours

First thing Saturday morning I checked out the Less is More challenge!   and this week it is a great fun one, inspired by our British Bonfire Night and the many splashes we will see this evening against the night sky.   The challenge is Red and Orange.

Gorgeous warm autumn colours, that got me thinking about Canada.   One day I will get to see what must be a glorious autumn display.   With that spectacle in mind this black based card was stamped with Tanda stamps in Perfect Medium.   Perfect Pearls in Real Red and Copper has been brushed over the ink.

I'd like to share this with
Inky Impressions   -   Photo Inspiration
Craft your days away   -   Autumn




With Autumn still very much in mind I made this card using the same materials and Clarity stamps.
