Less Is More ,,,,,, :-)

I haven’t joined in with the Less Is More Challenge for a while now, I have been busy in the UK and cheering on team GB in the Olympics :-) Not that I went to see them live, I was cheering from the comfort of my parents TV room :-)

Anyways ,, Mandi and Chrissie are asking for one layer with feathers and/or fur :-)

I spotted this cute Santa’s Little Helper stamp on my shelf and thought he would do :-) I have actually made 4 of these ! so quick and easy to do :-)

I used versafine ink to stamp the Hero Arts sentiment and embossed with clear EP. I used a Fiskars stamping press so that it would be straight, I have wonky eyes and never manage free hand :-)I stamped the imge with Black Archival ink and coloured with Distress Markers, my first attempt at using them for colouring and I do need some practise but I think it’s passable :-) I didn’t want to use copics as the ink would have shown on the inside.I finished with some Polar White Flower Soft on his pom pom and hat trim and some Star Dust stickles on the icy floor :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I will pop around to see you later but for now I am going for a swim ,,, having been inspired by the wonderful Becky Adlington ,,, lol :-)
