Clean and Simple Art Nouveau

A couple of weeks ago I bought some beautiful Rennie Mackintosh stamps in the Chocolate Baroque sale.  I've inked them up today and make a card for two challenges ...

Less is More - "Cut it Out" (show some kind of hole or aperture in your card), and
Just for Fun - "Art Nouveau"



Stamp is Chocolate Baroque Mackintosh Baubles - inked in Versafine and coloured with Promarkers
Aperture and circular frame cut with Nesties
Font is Nouveau, downloaded free from Da Font

Thanks for taking the time to visit - wishing you all a great week.

Suze xx
