LIM - in the frame







it's one layer week at Less is more, with the theme "in the frame"
One of the way to get around the flatness of one layer cards, is to think about instead of adding stuff think about taking it away.

This Stampotique stamp
was perfect for the theme, and i decided to cut away the background to make the little guy really standout. To make him stand out further I added some colour to the inside of the card by sectioning of a piece, brayering on some colour, and then stamping a splatter stamp.

The image is coloured with pencils and I have added some grey shadow around the frame to try to lift it. The "whatever" word, just seemd so perfect to use for this little guy.

all the stamps are available from Stampotique
