Less is more

Morning all,

Well there is a new challenge over on the Less is More blog this week, it has to be one layer and the theme this week is spots! YAY - I won WHOOP WHOOP

Now I thought about doing a leopard or bokeh spots, but those cards had already been done, and I wanted to do something different...

So I searched my filing system (aka Baskets LOL) and couldn't find anything that I particularly liked.. until I searched behind my door in my craft room...I have some DVD storage that I use to store my Old Stampin Up! stamps, and I usally forget all about these, they haven't been played with for a while now...  well this one called "Made with Love" jumped out at me.  It actually comes with polka dot spots in the stamp set... so any way this is the card I made..

I've stamped the deer first in kraft ink, then masked it off and then stamped the onesie in pale pink ink. The spots are in a darker pink.  The sentiment comes from the same set and that has also been stamped in kraft ink.
I coloured the onesie and the deer with my copic markers with minimal shading on the deer, added a rosy chhek and three white spots on his cheek,

 I also added just a touch of glitter with my stardust gelly roll pen, well after all this is a baby card teehee.

Considering this is a CAS one layer card, I really rather like it!, hope you do and don't forget to check out the other cards and maybe join in with this challenge!

  5. That's such a sweet card. One layer cards are so hard to do but you made a stunning job with this one. Love Dawn x

    1. Thanks Dawn, I agree, they are so hard aren't they hugs XoX

  6. A great idea for our challenge, both elements work perfectly. I love how you've stamped each image in a coloured ink too, I so often reach for black without thinking but this really gives it a totalling different feel. Thanks so much for sharing with us at Less is More, Anita x

  7. Thank you Neets, yes I thought the Kraft ink looked a little softer for a baby card, hugs XoX

  8. Ahw, this is so sweet. Have a nice day, Ankie
