Less is More – Week 19

I think I may be psychic!  This is about the third or fourth week in a row now where I have managed to cover the current weeks challenge in my card for the previous weeks challenge ( this was my one layer frame card from last week here).  Our challenge this week at Less is More is ‘One Layer’ and a ‘Frame’ and to be as inventive as we like in creating said frame.  This is my first attempt:
To start I dry embossed the frame on my scoreboard, then stamped and embossed the butterfly in silver and coloured with distress ink. Next I masked the frame and butterfly and over stamped with my new script stamp, then dusted with Perfect Pearls. Sentiment was also stamped and dusted with Perfect Pearls and to finish a few restrained dot’s of stickles on the butterfly and frame.
I think I need some new sentiment stamps, all mine are too plain/cute….I saw some lovely Kaisercraft sets yesterday at Snazzys and very reasonably priced as well.  May just have to treat myself to some.
Items: White 5x5 card blank, MS Scoreboard, Butterfly stamp free from Craft Stamper, VersaColor Silver inkpad, silver detail embossing powder, Prima Script Stamp, Antique Linen Distress inkpad, sentiment from a Molly Blooms set, Gold Perfect Pearls and Platinum Stickles.

  4. Very pretty frame and the butterfly is elegant and perfect for the frame.

  5. Super card Lisa, there's a little sparkly dot missing, bottom right hand corner! (How picky can she get? I hear you say).
