... This is going to be a very quick post as I want to make sure that I catch the deadline for submission to this week's Less is More - LIM58 challenge, where Chrissie and Mandi want us to use script on a one layer card.
I started by stamping the lovely vintage frame onto the card base, masking it and then stamping the script stamp behind. I coloured the rose and added a simple sentiment. It's not a perfect card by any means, but my black ink has dried up a bit and I've had to use the pens which missed in a few places!! Still, I like the layout and style of this and might try it again with fresh pads!
Stamps: Waltzingmouse - Compact Sentiments, Vintage Labels 25; Heidi Grace Designs - Stamp Patterns
Inks: Stampin' Up! Pens - Basic Black, Basic Grey, Old Olive, Rose Red
Accessories: Card from stash
The weather here has improved so much since this morning - we now have brilliant sunshine and it's over 70F!! Oh yes, the hotel have upgraded our room too. We are now in a two-bedroomed suite which is so much easier for us. It means that Kathryn has her own bedroom and doesn't have to use the sofa bed! Bliss! Anyway, that's all for today, Jonathan will be home from work soon and then we can go shopping and get some dinner. I'll write again tomorrow once we've been to the house! Oh, I should add that I've been into Joanne's - it's magic, but I restrained myself and only got the Heidi Grace stamp that I used in the card!! I'm sure I'll be back again soon.
