More Less is More

 I made this card above with the same shoe stamp as the card I made yesterday only difference is today I stamped on coloured card instead of white so I don't need to colour in the shoes and I found the perfect sentiment to go with blue shoes !!! instead of a pearl like I added to yesterdays card today I added a tiny blue gem to the shoe bow.
Now I made this card above as my 3rd and last entry for this weeks theme at the Less is More Challenge
 I thought I'd take Tilda off the page !! and as the theme is one layer I didn't use Copic Markers (as they sometimes soak into the card and are visible from the other side) I used Prisma pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend , as you can see I'm not good at colouring with this medium, I bought over 80 pencils a couple of years ago and I've used them .....well this is the 3rd time !! I have no patience with them.
You can also see this card and lots of other Magnolia creations from the girls over at the Steel Magnolias
Have a great day Hugs.........

like both of these Susie - finally you cut Tilda up too! I rfemeber the uproar when I chopped her head off once!!

I like the Tilda one best out of these two and overall think the first one you did is my favourite of the three.

Love your cards!

I think you're being a little hard on yourself re the Prisma colouring and I agree that for one layer cards we should think of the reverse side of the image, but all in all I agree with Victoria... I think your first submission is my fave!

I don't see anything wrong with your coloring. I'm still learning to blend when using my Prisma pencils. I LOVE the Magnolia stamp...precious!
