Do Not Adjust Your Set...

...colour service will be resumed shortly.  It's just that I quite like monochrome at the minute.  This card was originally going to be in colour, and I have several scratch sheets to prove it.  But nothing was turning out like I'd planned, not least because the new clear stamp I was using (from a very very very well known stamp company) has a bubble in it, so I'll have to return it to the shop.  So this is Plan B.  Actually this is Plan B MkII.  


This is Plan B MkI but there's a tiny smudge on the 'h' and the 'g'.

For some reason the photos have blurred slightly in the upload.  Just squint, it'll be fine.

The challenge at Less Is More this week is a one layer card featuring foliage.

Vine leaf stamp is by Lavinia Stamps, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black first and third generation (second generation was a bit darker than I wanted).
Sentiment is from Woodware JGS272 The Hedgerow.

  5. Shirley, this is BEA-U-TI-FUL! That foliage stamp is amazing in the black and gray. Can't see the smudges in you photo ... so both cards look fabulous.
