Less is More #433 - Festive

 Happy Saturday! It's time for our last challenge of the year over at Less is More.

We are creating ONE LAYER Festive Cards

I've created two cards for you -

Card #1
I've stamped my images (MFT - Santa & Friends), and coloured them with polychromo pencils. Easy and very quick!

Card #2
Once again, I've stamped my images and coloured them but this time I created a mask for Santa and the reindeer, then used distress ink to create the background. I flicked water and mopped it up with paper towel to create the texture.

Our fabulous sponsor is 

I would like to enter my cards over at the following challenges -
Card #1 - Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas (Something being with R - Reindeer), Crafty Catz (Christmas), Craft Rocket Challenges (Christmas), Krafty Chicks (CAS), Timeout Challenges (Quick)
Card #2 - Allsorts (Christmas Characters), AUD Sentiments (Christmas/Winter Animals + A Sentiment), Cardz 4 Girlz (Cute Christmas), Christmas 24 (Santa)

  9. Nothing better than a one-layer card, especially with amazing colouring like this. All that crisp, white space is delicious and really makes those images pop. And your ability to create some shadow and dimension with your colouring makes you forget they are one-layer. Such fantastic cards and I'm so glad you shared them with us at TIME OUT!

  10. Thank you for joining Allsorts challenge with this entry, good luck.
    Happy crafting
