Less is More - coloured card blank

Hello everyone :o)

I have another DigiStamp Boutique card today, this time for the 'coloured card blank' challenge at Less is More... it's also one-layer week and I'm not great at those!...


Like my card yesterday, I opened up a solid digi paper in PagePlus, layered the image on and then added the sentiment underneath (changing the text to white before printing).  Then I sanded the colour off around the edges to leave a distressed white border.  It's dark blue, not black, in case it looks like I'm cheating for the challenge lol.

Items Used
White linen cardstock - Papermill Direct
Digi stamp & sentiment - Tie Set - DigiStamp Boutique
Solid digi paper - Pink Petticoat
Colouring - copics & prisma pencils

Bram's home from the vets looking very bald and sorry for himself, poor love!  He had two abscesses that both needed draining, and he's now got big holes that need bathing to keep them open... I'm not even thinking about the bill, it's too scary... sob!

Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

I think this is a great take on a one-layer card! I really don't know how to do these... Fun design for a male card!

The dark card blank and colourful ties make a super card for a Dad. Masculine but still fun. x
