Less Is More challenge #19 is a ONE LAYER WEEK again. The challenge is entitled "IN THE FRAME. Chrissie and Mandi would like to see a frame of some sort or something in a frame... They'd like you to be as inventive as you like. You could doodle, draw, emboss, ink, paint, colour, print, stamp, emboss resist, mask or any other method you can come up with to get a frame of sorts into your design.
Well today, I went to my local scrapbook store to get some ink, and of course, I did not stop there. I saw two stamps I had to have. I used one of them for my LIM project. It is called Boat Cupcake from Impression Obsession, Inc. I saw some amazing cards lately with embossed frames using Nestabilities, and I wanted to try that technique. As usual, the LIM challenge made me try something new. Gotta love that! I combined my new stamp with the embossed frame technique for my take on this week's LIM challenge. I used Gina K's tutorial that you can view HERE.
I used watercolor paper as my base, stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored it with a combination of Twinkling H2O's, SU Watercolor Crayons and Watercolor Pencils. I framed the image by embossing with Nestabilities Labels Eleven. I did the sky with SU Bashful Blue ink and the Inkessentials blending tool. I then stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Clear Design June with VersaFine Onyx Black ink.
I need a Father's Day card for my DH, so this is perfect. He is a beach guy... He will love it! Thanks for stopping by to visit!
