Less is More Week 35

The "Colour Of Your Eyes"  challenge from Less is More.
I discovered this challenge 
from one of the blogs I follow and thought it
would be fun to play along. 
The idea is to keep it clean and simple,  few or no embellishments and a lot of white space (an area with no image or embellishments) using your own eye color as the predominate theme. It was not as easy as I thought. Sure you can fold card stock in half and just add an image and a sentiment, but does it make a statement? Adding embellishments and different elements, buttons and bows is what we do as card makers. Always looking for new products bells and whistles. So this challenge had me thinking differently. 
My eyes are chocolate brown and so is the base color. This is as simple as I could come up with. The cute little teddy bear was my inspiration. It just makes me think of hugs. I used black dimensional fabric paint for his eyes and red for his bow. It's so hard to stop myself from using more embellishments. The designers do a fabulous job with simplicity. It's worth visiting the site. I will keep "Less is More" in mind as I challenge myself to simplicity in card making. That would save a lot of time with Christmas Cards.
