LIM week 180 - One layer card with fingerprints!

LIM week 180
What a lot of fun the challenge is this week over at the Less is More Challenge blog... Adapt a fingerprint on a one layer card.  Well technically, I'm not sure this one will fit as I did use my Thumbprint for each balloon Lol..  I masked each thumbprint as I went with a balloon shape cut from paper - and then I used a white gel pen to draw around each of them to create balloons!  The Beautiful stamps are from the Little Suzys Zoo design  available from Joanna SheenI coloured the characters with pencils - plus I coloured around the edges of the balloons to try to make them pop a little..(not actually pop Lol..)

Thank you for visiting today :)


  1. oh wow - this is great, I was going to go with balloons at first. Steal away with the xmas lights, if you look on Pinterest you will see loads of ideas.

    1. Thankyou Linby.. I will... it will be a great craft with my grand kids too..I bet they will love to make some Christmas cards and get messy LOLOLOL! x

  2. And don't fingertips make great balloons!?!?!


  3. So pretty how all the colours mix and blend together. Now I'll know what to do with my inky fingers instead of using a wet wipe!

  6. Such an awesome idea. Wouldve never thought you can make such cute stamps just using your own fingers. Cant wait to try, especially the little critters and balloon s. Thanks for sharing.

  7. The balloons are amazing... your use of the gel pen has given fantastic dimension to them.
    Terrific card!
    Thanks so much

  9. Sylvie the dimension and colours you've given this are stunning! I saw it on the JS Forum and thought you'd missed out the one layer part till I clicked and enlarged - totally gorgeous balloons with those adorable stamps.

    Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, about my fossil card. I have all three sets of the Tales of the Ocean stamps and they are gorgeous - but I especially love the fossil one! You are very clever to be able to design so many wonderful stamps - they are a pleasure to work with.
