Less Is More Challenge Week 9: A Touch of Red (Color Challenge)

I was so happy when I saw this weeks Less Is More challenge! This week we have been presented with a color challenge: A Touch of Red. I immediately knew what I was going to do and proceeded to complete this card in about five minutes. I LOVE it when that happens... when inspiration hits and everything you pictured in your head comes together even more beautifully than you had imagined! So here it is...

I was thrilled to finally use a technique I saw a long time ago in a magazine... one where you cut out parts of the same image and then adhere them together using dimensional adhesives. The article I read used stamps, but I chose to use this gorgeous flower from a piece of AC Patterned Paper (the a la Carte stack). I simply cut out one entire flower then cut out half of another one just like it. They are stacked with dimensional adhesives between them. I am also happy because I got to use one of my new Hero Arts sets for the sentiment (the Made With Love set-CL491). This has got to be one of my favorite submissions so far!

Thanks for letting me share! I am hoping to revisit this weeks challenge at least one more time. My brain is still whirring with ideas!

As always
