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 .
