Antique Engravings In The Frame

Hello Crafters,

I had great intentions of going out today but it's such a dull, grey day here in Aberdeen I thought I'd switch on the heating and spend some time in my little crafty room.

It's been a few weeks since I've joined in with the Less is More Challenge but when I saw the theme this morning was "Frame It", I was inspired to do a little thinking outside the box.

Here's my card ....



I stamped and clear embossed several images from the Hero Arts Antique Engravings set then sponged over with Squeezed Lemonade, Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord DI's.  I then mounted the images behind a Tim Holtz filmstrip die. DL card base.

Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

I'm also linking this card to Addicted to CAS #8 - Wings

Thanks for popping in to see me, I'll pop round to visit this evening and I'll see you again on Monday for the new challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.

Take care
Suze xx

I've got this filmstrip die too but never seen it used like this. Really effective with lovely colours.

Beautifully done!

Ann Tuck said...

Your film strip die is the perfect frame for these beautiful butterflies! Your colours are so soft - they showcase the images so well. I make a point of never looking at other entrants' work before I submit my own, so I never know what others are doing - yours is stunning!

Like your out of the box thinking Mrs B clever take on the theme those butterflies in the frame are beautifully colored and the film strip works wonderfully. Yep you heard right I have nothing negative to say I must be very ill

Take care my crafty friend.
