Less is More - Week 189 - one layer

 Whew, what a week, I hope not to have another one like that and I have certainly felt like hitting the beverages!  Our theme for one layer week at Less is More is Beverages and my first card uses a stamp that I bought when I was first starting out.  It's by Rubber Romance and don't even think of Googling that without adding stamps to the search, the images you get otherwise are rather unsavoury!  My martini girl is coloured with Copics and has a sentiment added from Acid Drops and What-Nots, which always makes me smile.  The background is made with an Inky Doodles stencil and some Milled Lavender Distress Ink.
I'm entering my card for a couple of challenges:
Simon Says - create your own background
That's Crafty - girl power!

My second card is a bit less literal.  I began by inking up an acrylic block with Desert Sand and then Sepia and stamped that for my background.  The sentiment (Rubber Romance again) and the coffee ring are embossed with WOW bark.
I'm entering my card for a couple of challenges:
Cards und More - clean and simple
Sisterhood of Crafters - single layer cards

I would like to finish up with a sentiment I found on Pinterest that I like - so true!


  1. Fantastic cards Anne love that fun sentiment on the first one. Hope you have a much calmer week this week. Sarah x

  2. Ha ha yes I have a few rubber romance stamps and have fallen foul in the search engine lol!
    Live the background on the first card really adds to the image.
