Less is More - Week #254 - one layer

 Good morning and welcome to One Layer week at Less is More.  This week our theme is "What's in my Stocking".  I will admit that I have struggled with this theme!  However, both my cards have used an early Christmas present to myself - which is 'in my stocking' - the MISTI.  All I can say is, the hype is true and this is a wonderful tool for one layer cards in particular.  I don't think I will ever stamp again without using my MISTI!

My first card uses a Rubber Romance image and sentiment and is coloured with Copics.  Of course, it is chocolate that I ewould like to find in my stocking!  Coffee is also welcome and chocolate covered coffee beans even better.  Men/rich men?  No thanks lol!  I am finding that my Copics, which are mostly four/five years plus old, are beginning to dry up.  Do I replace or do I move to another colouring medium...?
As my sons grew up, the stocking tradition evolved to chocolate and a good book, and my second card uses a lovely Unity Stamp Company image.  It came from their May Kit of the Month and has a great sentiment with it; however I have left my card sentiment free.  It is coloured with Inktense pencils and I've doodled a border with a Pigma pen.


  1. What a fantastic and beautiful pair of cards Anne, love them both. The first card's sentiment made me laugh, I totally love rich coffee and chocolate.
    The second card is just so sweet, it reminds me of my 17 year old granddaughter, who is a Senior in High School, she is always surrounded by books.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful cards.

  2. That's exactly what I want in my stocking! Great card...
