Less is More - Week 226 - 2 or 4 legs

The current challenge over at Less is More is '2 or 4 legs'. So no centipedes then? Sigh :(

A quick rootle through some unused stamps turned up a little two-legged cutie:
I used:

- 5" x 5" square white card blank

- a snippet of orange card stock as a smaller frame

- the image was stamped onto a white layer using Memento 'Tuxedo Black' ink and a cling mounted stamp by Stampendous called 'Chickadee', coloured using Faber Castell Prismacolour pencils and Sansodor blending fluid

- the sentiment was stamped into a gap in the image design, used Memento 'Tuxedo Black' and a little stamp from an Elzybells set called 'Mini Tag Set'

That's it folks, quick and easy. I do think this could make some sweet Christmas cards if I coloured the birdie as a robin and made the berries red - watch this space :)



  1. so cute Di! Perfectly coloured! Cas-tastic and a fantastic take on our leggy challenge.
    Thanks for playing along at Less is more. Sarah x
    PS. Huge congrats on your double whammy win at Uniko! X

  2. Absolutely gorgeous card, Di. And you're right about the stamp, by colouring in the bird and berries differently it could take you through all the seasons of the year. Those berries, coloured in pink, could look like blossom buds, and then the bird could be a blue tit, and for autumn they could be coloured purple and the bird could be, erm, an autumny birdy thing.....

  3. A great card Di - I must put that stamp on my growing wish list. I love Jane's comments about seasonal birds!

  7. I am smiling as ordered!!

    So cute CAS, this bird is really a sweetie!

  9. That is a cute chickadee, and I love the yellow accents. You're right, I think this would look great made into a Christmas card.

  14. Yes, no centipedes. A group I'm in has "2-legged animals" as an upcoming swap and all I could think about is it would be all men. Men have two legs and are animals, yes? Birds have two legs but aren't animals (they are birds)...... and probably a double amputee elephant doesn't count. So bias!
