Less is more Challenge #254: what's in my stocking?

Less is more Challenge #254: what's in my stocking?

For my one layer card I used Neenah classic crest cardstock and a  Stampies image from the Kerst set  St10009, sentiments also from that set and all stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink.
I coloured him with my Spectrum Noir markers.

I positioned the image a little to the top as I think images look better a little off centre, to the top makes the image "lighter" as if floating, to the bottom it makes them "heavy"...
It's a really simple card and image, but still took me 30 minutes orso to colour, fiddly little bits ;-)

Next Friday is my birthday and I probably should put a stocking up, shouldn't I? One can hope lol

  1. But worth the effort too! Have a lovely birthday next week


  2. Love this cute little image - happy birthday when it comes.

  3. Leuk kaartje!
    Alvast een fijne verjaardag volgende vrijdag.

  4. Perfect image Maaike, beautifully coloured and CAS-tastic. It's not fun having a birthday so close to Christmas is it? My daughter's is NYD so although we try to have a 'special' day for her it's always swamped with Christmas. Have a wonderful time though and as always thanks for playing along at Less is More.
