One Layer Sport

That was the theme this week at Less is More - to create a one layer card featuring sport or exercise

I'm very late playing this week as it's been a rough one but I'm feeling a bit brighter this afternoon so sat up in bed for a spot of colouring as unlike lots of card makers out there who hate both one layer and masculine cards - I love them, and combine to two often!  So here's what I came up with - 2 cards in under 20 mins which has to be a record.

The first is a cricketer from Papermania stamped directly onto kraft card and coloured with my polychormos pencils.  The sentiment is from the same set stamped in red to draw your across to the ball and vice-versa.

Now I know lots of people don't think of fishing as a "proper" sport, but my Dad did and the sentiment would sum him up to a tee were he still with us so I just couldn't resist this set from WPlus9 when I saw it.  It has matching dies too and I just love it.


  1. Two great cards Tara..just the the cricketer on kraft card and your sentiment on the 2nd is fab.
    Hope you are feeling better


  2. So sorry you`ve been poorly Tara, I hope you`re on the mend.
    Your cards are terrific. I love the cricket one, the colouring is perfect.

  5. Superb colouring Tara, that really is eye-catching and the perfect CAS card for a fisherman too :0)
    Sorry to hear you've been unwell..... colouring in bed sounds rather indulgent though :0)
