Less is More ... One Layer ... Cheers

 Saturday morning and time for a new challenge at Less is More ... this time it is everyone's favourite 'One layer challenge'.

When I create 'one layer cards' it feels like I am cheating as so little seems to be involved in creating the card ... then I wonder why it takes me so long! But this type of card still needs lots of decisions ... which stamp. where will you position the image, how will you colour it, does it need anything else?  All these decisions take time and thought ... at least I was lucky this time and stamped a perfect image and finished the card without a stray spot of ink where it shouldn't be!

I used:
STAMPlorations - Sweet Kindness; The Birds and Blooms
Versafine Onyx Black Ink
Faber Castell Polychromo Crayons

Check out the blog for more inspiration.

I've just popped back to enter this into the current challenge at TIME OUT challenge #171

Stay Safe!


  1. I love this card Elaine. My first thought when I saw the cue was alcohol, which is strange because I rarely drink it, it never occured to me to go coffee. This works perfectly.

  2. Well done with this Cheersful coffee cup OLC, Elaine! I love the pops of color! In fact, I don't know if you will see this in time, but if you do, you should edit your post and add the "Color Hues" challenge where the brief is turquoise and blue! This is perfick! Take care! Hugs, Darnell
