Less is More Week 190

 This week at Less is More our theme is "Let's face the music and dance", which can be interpreted in all sorts of different ways; I just hope you don't have that dratted music stuck in your brain as I do!  My first card uses a Lavinia Designs silhouette stamp on an inked background.  I outlined the 'hill' with a Pigma pen, something I saw on Barbara Gray's blog.  This was so nearly a one layer card, until the clear plastic that the stamp is stored on shed a small black mark...
I am behind on my challenges after the past week, so I'm entering my card for the following:
Art Impressions - orange, purple and black
Crafty Little Fairies - sparkle and bling
Moving along with the Times - fairies
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - things with wings

MY second card uses an Impression Obsession stamp that I fell for recently on one of my craft show forays with Chrissie, I think it was Newbury?  The two girls look as though they are just waiting to dance.  Sentiment is SU and I embossed part of a music folder onto the card. Coloured with Copics.
I'm entering my card for:
Crafty Catz - Pretty Women
Hobbybook Designer - embossing


  1. Superb cards as always Anne. I do love the top one and would never know there was a black smudge! Been there done that many times!!!!
