LIKE A BAT OUT O' HELL!!!

Happy Saturday All

Here's my post for the Less Is More challenge, which to be honest when I checked it out this morning I thought NO WAY!

Firstly I struggle with all this white space / one layer - it's kind of bare and alien to me!  Secondly, I don't do rubber stamping ... yes I've tried many many times and have a cart load of them but you can bet when I want to stamp it perfect it just doesn't happen.  However I do lurvvvvve digi stamps as you can do so much them.

So despite my initial apprehensions I decided to have a go.  The image is Dirt Bike Mike from Kenny K who I saw a couple of weeks ago on Jen's blog at The Tiny Blue Butterfly.  When I popped across to the Kenny K website I discovered he's a FREEBIE for this month hmmm.  So he immediately came to mind when I saw the LIM theme.

I've flipped him and reduced him down and slightly rotated him so that he's on more of a slope.  I used my mini mosaic embossing folder, that I treated myself to last week, to give a bumpy road effect then de-bossed the insert with the same.

So here he is:
