It's one layer time at Less is More again and this time the focus is another tricky one... a masculine theme!
Here is a new set of stamps to me, from Wplus9, but sadly one of them ripped when I was taking it off the carrying sheet. I have never had this happen before and I'm really delighted that Tara from Make the Day Special (which is where I got the stamps from) is organising a replacement for me.
The outline and sentiment is stamped in Versafine Onyx Black and the colour from Shabby Shutters Distress Ink for the pear and Memento Pistachio for the leaf, with a touch of a marker for the stalk.
I'm not sure of the make of this tankard stamp but I've got a feeling it may be Creative Expressions... it's grey rubber from a set of masculine images that I have had in my stash for quite some time. I stamped and embossed in white, then masked it and stamped the Hero Arts background...also another old stamp. I coloured the tankard with watercolour pencils blending with a water brush. When dry I added some Glossy Accents and micro beads for the foam and then covered the rest with Glossy Accents. I shaded a little underneath the tankard to give a little grounding shadow, but it looks rather like a smudge... it was intentional however!
