LIM one layer


The theme at LIM is to make a one layer card using "something with legs" ! Wow that's a big theme... so many things with legs.... where to start...
Then I decided to use one of the stampotique girls that always have the most fabulous legs.
now honestly this card started out Clean and Simple, but somewhere along the way it turned a bit grungy, and I actually for once think it's better for it.

I'm actually glad to show that One Layer doesn't have to mean Clean and Simple.

However I also want to keep the Limmettes happy, so I've used another stampotique stamp (with legs..... well feet at least) to make a CAS card too. This one is really CAS, just stamped and coloured, but I've also added a bit of depth by dry embossing a frame to make the image stand out.

  8. Joanne - these are great. I agree that the second card is much more in line with the LIM theme - lots of white space.

    But I just adore the grungy look of the first card!
