LIM Sketch take 2

How come one layer cards are so much easier to do when they're not actually required!!
A year ago I would never have dreamed of making a card like this, I couldn't even stamp straight! Only trouble is my bank balance keeps dipping as I now need so many new stamps and ink pads.


DL card, masked with post its and inked with bundled sage and shabby shutters DI. Image stamp from Inkylicious, sentiment from Daisy and Dandelion. I've highlighted the flower heads with a gelly roll pen.

Less is More - sketch

  3. A beautiful card Carol - the stamped image is fabulous.
    I know what you mean about the bank balance going down - too many stamps, not enough cash!!

  4. Lovely card Carol.

    You've just reminded my I've got that stamp set!! I'm currently trying to use all my un-inked stamps. Trouble is as quick as I'm using them I'm buying more lol. So, I've put myself on a stash diet! There are far worse things we could be spending our money on though!
