LIM week 289 - something French



I knew I had some French themed stamps so I routed them all out and then decided what to use. This is how I ended up doing three cards.
The first one uses Clarity stamps and a G45 stamp, then a stencil from Sheena for the background.

The second one is a stamp that has never seen ink - you can see why I wanted it I'm sure ;) I decided to use the same G45 stamp and also a stamp from French Foilage set by SU.

Lastly a stamp I have used before which comes with it's own french sentiment - I've used Coloursoft pencils and a blending pen for this card - my first go at this technique.

They are all for the one layer challenge at Less is More which this week is "something French".

Edit
I've been alerted by Darnell to a challenge I've never entered before One Layer Simplicity - I'm entering the last card into their Art challenge as I used the coloursoft pencils.

Three incredibly stylish cards, perfect for our French theme and beautifully stamped/coloured. You've been busy! I hope that second stamp will get another airing soon as it's gorgeous, so sophisticated and chic. Thanks so much for playing along at Less is More :)
