Less is more week 34 - Sketch

The girls are out shopping and O/H has gone to the footie, so I'm taking advantage of some time in my craft room and I've had such a lovely afternoon. I've been stamping, messing with inks and embossing - heaven.

As usual, the lessismore challenge has encouraged me to dig into all those items of stash that get sadly neglected - that includes another one of those stamps that has never been inked.  It's from the Stamp Man's Aspect of Design 01 plate and some of my Adirondack rainbow pads.


The challenge is a sketch:



and here's my card:


I had such fun playing with the inks I did two. I'm not sure which I prefer, but I think it's probably the pink and green.



Both images were embossed although you can't tell from the photo.  I stamped the image onto a piece of copy paper first and cut out the frame to create a mask and used my brushes to add ink to the backgroun.  The sentiment stamps are both from my Paula Pascual set.  I mounted the finished pieces onto some Stamping Up card.

They're both fab Sue... and I simply love the image... I think maybe the pink has the edge for me, but I love them both!
Thanks so much

Wow, Sue! Two beautiful cards! I believe if I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the pink, although I am a big fan of the teal color too!
