LIM week 115- a film - one layer

As most of you will know I am a bit of a Fashionista - so when it came to the Less is More challenge to chose a film, I chose "Coco before Chanel" - and I just happen to have a stamp with a Chanel quote on it! The stamp is from Krafty Kimmie and I have been itching to use it, so this is great. I used a mask from Clever cuts and sponged pan pastels over it to create the background. I felt it was lacking something and added a small A Griffin flourish. I decided not to colour her dress, thinking the background half colouring it was a nice effect.
My next film is "Cocktail" which is really just another excuse to use one of my new Frou Frou stamps from Crafters Companion. I've used Cosmic acrylic drawing inks to colour the image and a fleximarker for the skin tone. I used a set of spellbinder dies to emboss the corner and then coloured over with pan pastels. the sentiment is not from the stamps that go with the image, I decided to use one from a MFT set.
