Less is More # 111

Good Afternoon All!

I`ve got a really busy day today so this will have to be short and sweet I`m afraid. I do have time to welcome my new follower Sue though. Welcome to my little blog Sue.

The theme for this weeks Simply Less is More challenge is to  FRAME IT.
Right up my street as this is the style I use most often lately.

As spring will soon be here ( hopefully) I thought I`d use this stamp and some lovely fresh colours.
I bought the stamp at a craft fair earlier this year but there`s no name on it, sorry. Coloured with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir pens. The sentiment is by TSG.

I already had this stamp, from Papermania, out for a commisioned card so thought it would look good in a frame too. I`ve lightly chalked the background in a very pale green before colouring the image with Promarkers and Spectrum Noir Pens. I`ve added some Glamour Dust to the image and some Glossy  Accents to the cherry.
The sentiment is a mix of Waltzing Mouse and Layers of Color.

This is a card I made last night for someone at Alan`s work and then realised that it was a frame of sorts so I`m adding it to the challenge.
The stamp is by Funstamps and I`ve had it forever, coloured with markers.
I used cream card this time and made a panel which I embossed with a woodgrain pattern using a Crafts Concepts EF.
I cut the image out and placed it using foam pads, the sentiment is again from TSG.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
