LIM fingerprints

Afternoon folks.
An extra post this week as I'm still in my craftroom, no trips to do son's washing. 
This week's challenge at Less is More is to adapt a fingerprint and create a one layer card.
Well first off what a hoot, then second read the instructions before getting carried away!
I finished my first attempt but forgot to make it one layer!! Never mind it was good practice for the real thing!


I saw a card awhile ago with a line of thumb print stamps as the focal and the tagline 'Thumb body loves you', so thought I would use that idea, hence the tag line. perfect for a retirement card. The fingerprints were made into toe-poke sandals on a beach. I debossed the umbrella and inked the sky,sea and beach before adding the sandals. 
I shall also just have time to enter the challenge at Time Out - Fun in the sun
Thanks to my teamie Cornelia's nudge I shall also enter at -

Well thanks for popping around and taking the time to check the blog out.
Also thanks to all those folk who are interested enough in my ramblings to press the follow button.
