Less is More - One Layer

On the less is more challenge this week the challenge is one layer,which, I have to admit, I have never tried before.

The prospect of stamping directly on to a card blank is a little bit scary to me, but I have to admit I really enjoyed making this card and it saved a lot of time, compared to thinking about matting and layering, matching papers etc.

So, for this card, out came my lovely Humphrey stamps (although this isn't Humphrey obviously!) and my trusty rockablocks which got me through the stamping process without having palpitations!

I coloured this little cutie pie in with my watercolour pencils as these stamps really lend themselves to that particular medium, and had some lovely fun in the process.

I decided that this type of one layer effect would be great for 'notelet' type situations...you know 'thanks for the pressie' etc, so I think I will definitely be doing some more of these in the future.

But in the meantime I'm going to enter this card in to:

Less is More - One Layer Theme - something with legs.

Thanks for looking.

I'll be back with another post in a couple of minutes!
