It's only words.....

or not as the case may be!
This is a quick post and a quick card for this week's Less Is More  challenge. The old cold just refuses to go away at the mo and I am getting sorely irritated with myself as I am struggling to finish up all the half done bits on the desk... hopefully I'll be back later with another post but don't hold your breath!
 Challenge this week was THREE of something -
"Three of anything, three colours, three images, three stamps, three words, the number three, it's up to you, but don't forget the lots of white space, a simple design and just one layer"

Agggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh!
The dreaded one layer - as you can see I have added a little teeny weeny absolutely minute piece of ribbon as an embellie......well two pieces actually- (down on knees, begs for forgiveness....).

This image makes me smile - Marcel Marceau in triplicate!
I love their little scrawny elongated necks!!

So I thought maybe it could be a card used for saying sorry? Or just to send someone a message of comfort?

Printed direct onto bright white card, coloured it slightly with promarkers and although you can't see it very well the central body has had some glossy accents placed on his cherry red lips - just right for kissing and making up!!! LOL
The sentiment was PC generated and I embossed a couple of lines at the top and a single line at the bottom. I have resisted the temptation (for now- ha ha) to add a couple of black pearls onto the bottom below the embossed line......... maybe I should put it away before the urge becomes too much!

Luckily there is another challenge I can submit this too - over at Cupcake Crafts the theme is 'Le Tour de France' - anything France related - so even though I would normally go overboard with the red, white, blue, loads of papers layers and embellies, I have entered this for a change.

Thanks for popping by my blog earlier :) These are fab characters. The tiny bit of red is great with the classy black and white... and that sentiment is absolutely perfect. I also love the white/black ribbon contrast. Great card!

Viv said...

Great card again Viv,I like those fun characters too. The ribbon does add to the card I agree and it is only teeny tiny he he.I am not so terrified of one layer cards now....can't believe I said that lol! Hope your cold goes away very soon. :)
