Less Is More - Seeing Double

Here I am with another quickie post for you.  This week at LESS IS MORE it's a One Layer Card with the theme of Seeing Double .....


This one was instant - the moment I saw the challenge I just knew I wanted to use this Le Chat Noir stamp that was free with the Craft Stamper mag several months ago.  First off, I stamped the background with a Hero Arts square shadow stamp in Memento Desert Sand ink.  I then overstamped Le Chat Noir in Memento London Fog ink and the tiny flowers also.  Then I reinked the cat in Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped off to one side, and finally added the Hero Arts sentiment.

Then I repeated the theme on the inside with another Hero Arts sentiment


I'm seeing double a bit myself now that I've taken some kick-arse painkillers - back is still really painful but I don't care, lol!

Hugs, Sxx

Brilliant Squirrel, I love that stamp and spent a good hour trying out different ways to get a shadow but you have nailed it with the mirror effect! Hope your back is better soon:)

This card is great. I'm a CS fan, so I have that stamp too and I'm now ashamed that I've never used it. Hope your back improves soon.

Your card is fantastic, i love some of the CS stamps we get. This one doesn't stamp very well for me for some reason. I've done a cat card too this week.
