Less is More week 23 One layer card " something with legs"

Well this week's challenge at Less is More will certainly bring in a mixed bag of entries! The theme is "something with legs" which covers a host of different images. Already there are so many cards up with loads of ideas.
I played around for a while and eventually came up with 2 cards. The first one uses an image of Leonardo da Vinci and his inventions which is from Stamp Addicts vintage range. I stamped the images with black brilliance ink and then sponged some colour on with chalks.The sentiment was created on my xyron printer.
The second one is a Judikins Indian cube and I stamped three elephants in black, masked them and stamped the palm trees  in grey ink. I coloured the elephants with promarkers and the sentiment is from my xyron printer.
Not sure Lady Lim should be allowed to fail in her duties just because she is on holiday, I see that Diane is on holiday but has still produced a submission as a dedicated LIM!!!!!!! Just joking Chrissie, hope you had a lovely time:)
Thanks for looking:)
