Less is More Week #341

Good morning

It's time for a new challenge over at Less is More and this week it's the turn of our One Layer challenge.  Ok, so it's not everyone's favourite but why not give it a go.  I think this week's theme will give you quite a few options...

We have our winner of the AAA Collaboration challenge, Marge, joining us today so please do pop over to her blog if you have time.

Just one card from me this week and I used a couple of recent purchases for this one, as well as having a go with my Polychromos which I haven't had much chance to use yet...

I recently purchased this mini stamp set from Clearly Besotted as I thought it would be great for little boys' cards.  I stamped the images first, the sentiment being from a different retired CBS set, then stamped again on post-its to use as masks.  I then blended some clouds using the MFT cloud edges stencil with some Distress Ink.  This is the mini cloud edges stencil as I still haven't managed to get my hands on the regular one, it keeps selling out at breakneck speed in the UK!  All that was left to do was colour the images. My shading with the Polychromos needs some work but I did love using them, they are lovely pencils.  Definitely more practice needed!

Materials used:

  • Stamps: Clearly Besotted - Take Flight, Going Places
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress Ink - Tumbled Glass
  • Stencil: MFT - Mini Cloud Edges 
  • Coloured with Faber Castell Polychromos pencils
