LIM before making my card cos I always find cards that I want to case and then it wouldn't be my idea. But I follow some fellow blogs who join in but this card is what I first thought off which is typically me and I'm dead chuff that I managed to cut into some sheets of paper that I've had for ages 2006 in fact since I made a Trash Book with Kirsty Wiseman. Good job the plain colour was teal cos that was the colour of the accent beads I had for the centres.
Jenny had made a scene on her strip which I thought was so cute and while I was looking for the floral stamp I used for the first card I saw this old ship stamp and I thought it would make a great scene strip. Now I used a brayer yes I did say brayer but this strip was one of the best and luckily I was able to cut off the awful bit once I stamped the stamp. I then embossed the ship with clear embossing powder the reason for this is I used a technique I saw Kim Reygate demo at Newbury Stamp show years ago. Using neat bleach I painted over the sails and watched the amazing transformation of the blue sails to white.
Then came the arrival of some Penny Black London stamps and I've quickly made a card which I'll post later.
Before I go I want to congratulate to the girls of Less is More Challenge for a whole year of LIM challenges .
Loving these creations. The sail boat one is such a beautiful one for a man.
These are both gorgeous Debby. I love the dimension in the first card.
I was interested to read about he bleach... I'd never thought of using it on ink... only on plain coloured cardstock. I really must have a go. Thanks for that.
Thanks also for your kind words about our blog we have been delighted with how it has developed over the past 12 months.. here's to the next year!
Thanks so much Debby.
