Less is so much More!!!

I've missed the last two weeks of Less is More having been away so I couldn't wait to do the current challenge.


My image/s are by Tiddly Inks, the faded one to the rear is called 'Stand out in the Crowd' and the coloured one is called Batty. I had to play around with Batty and remove the bat she had on a string and turn the background transparent so I could merge her with the other image. I simply added the title of the background image to use as my sentiment and printed the whole straight onto the card. I didn't really want to colour Batty's hair or face but needed to so that she did in fact 'Stand out in the Crowd'!!
I've realized that if I do something unusual or whacky I'm happy with the overall Less is More, CAS look, but I've yet to master this with flowers or landscape type images.
I have another image that would suit this challenge if I have time to use it.
