"Less is More" Challenge #258 - one layer

 Welcome to one layer week at "Less is More".  This week our one layer challenge is Flourish.  First up I have some lovely flourishy script - Waltzing Mouse sentiments gold embossed.  I've stamped some SU Work of Art splotches and stencilled a Clarity honeycomb onto the card, both in Cracked Pistachio Distress Ink and I couldn't resist a minimal bit of extra gold with some sequins.
 My next card uses a Katzelcraft tree stamp which I chose for all the flourishes and twirls.  When I thought about it, a tree should flourish too...  I extended the roots to the edge of the card with a Pigma pen, coloured the leaves with Copics ans added a Winnie & Walter sentiment in Memento Pear.
My final card uses an old favourite - an Acid Drops and What Nots character who I think is called Christine - no resemblance whatsoever to Chrissie, our Lady LIM!  As I am trying to stick to a dry January (aarrgh!) she looks about as happy as I feel :).  Stamped and masked, with a flourish frame also by Acid Drops added.


  1. Dry January? Oh dear, how strong you are!I am SO impressed!
