In the Frame

Week 19 at Less is More is a One Layer card, and the theme this week is to use a frame. When I came to thinking about what kind of frame I would use I remembered this stamp by Stampendous which I have had for ages and ages. I bought it because I thought it was so pretty, but I have to admit it hasn't been used a great deal. Anyway I got it out and decided that it fitted the bill and stamped it with Memento London Fog ink onto an ivory card. I then coloured it with my Colour Soft pencils, and then stamped the sentiment inside the frame. I think the word stamp is a from a Butterfly Kisses plate. A very simple card but I hope you like it.
 Thankyou to all the kind folk who have left comments on my work. I hope to get to look at more blogs this week as I have installed a new browser on the computer so hopefully I will be able to leave comments again.I managed some under anonymous last week but some I couldn't do at all.

  8. Hi Jean,

    I'm finally managing to visit some of the lovely commentors on my blog. Thankyou very much for such kind remarks, they are much appreciated.

    I might not visit very often but when I do I have a really good nosy, lol! I do love your card for The Stampman Resist Challenge on the 2nd May. The colours are beautiful and the card is so well balanced.

    You have many other beautiful creations and this particular post's card is no exception. As you say the image is really pretty and beautiful colouring certainly does it justice.
