Less is More wk18 - monochrome

This week's challenge at Less is More is 'monochrome', and for my first attempt this week I've combined it with the sketch challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and ended up with this...


I say first attempt, because I've got lots of ideas for this one so if I find some spare time I might be back with some more...  The boxer shorts are from the Lazy Days set from Little Claire, stamped in bamboo memento onto ivory linen card.  The border stamp is from a Kelly Panacci set that I've had for AGES and have never used - I rediscovered it when I had a sort out last night! Coloured the shorts and border with promarkers.

I'm also entering my card for the 'clean & simple' challenge at CES Challenges.

Thanks for all your Anniversary messages yesterday! We had a yummy Chinese takeaway and some sparkly wine, and a nice evening in front of the telly lol. Off to visit mum now but I'll be round to visit you all later :o)

  21. Hi Lisa, I love this fun card and a great take on the CAS sketch too. Love how you've combined the challenges this week...very clever.
    Question - I'm loving all these memento coloured inks crafters use but they are pricey...Do you use the small teardrop shape pads, if yes are they very juicy with ink, or do you buy the larger pads?
