Less is More #11 take 2

Hello again!

After all my moaning and groaning earlier about using acetate I can`t believe that I`ve managed to come with take 2.It was after I`d had a sulk and went back to the Less is More site to post some comments that I had a eureka moment. Particularly after seeing Claire no 11 and Val no 15 submissions.
While we were shopping this morning I bought a copy of Simply Cards and Papercrafts Magazine which has some fabby freebie stamps from Pink Petticoat. With renewed mojo I set about making this card.

I stamped the image in Memento black and coloured it with Promarkers.
I made a 5x5 card base and cut a circle out with a nestie. Placed some acetate behind the aperture then placed my cut out image in the centre.
The sentiment is by Papermania Chatsworth collection.
I`m not sure if I should have decorated the card a bit more but I`m sure Mandi and Chrissie will put me right lol.

All in all I`m much more pleased with this one than my earlier one. I still dislike acetate but don`t hate it quite so much...
You never know...I might even come up with a third, stranger things have happened. lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  3. No, it isn't too plain, for me! If anything I guess the sentiment could have been mounted to give a slight bit more texture, but,I do think it;s great as it is
    Love the acetate effect
    thank you
