LIM: Framed Flowers

Morning all!  Just a quick post today as it’s a day full of football (again!!).  Thanks for all your comments yesterday about my photo….it really was a blue card though and not a dark picture…LOL!  I don’t think I’ll be using Baja Breeze as a card blank again.  But I thought I’d check out this Picasa everyone is raving about and I’m glad I did.
It is a grey day today so perfect opportunity!  Can you tell which one has been Picasa’d:
Silhouette Sentiments - beforeSilhouette Sentiments - after2
This is my latest entry for the in the frame challenge over on Less is More.  I masked a 5 cm band across a 15cm card blank using post-it notes and stamped flowers from Silhouette Sentiment in Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler.  I finished it off by blending Old Olive along the bottom of the frame using Cut ‘n’ Dry.  After removing the post-it notes I used the piercing mat from Stampin’ Up to frame it.
So I hope you like it….and I too can now highly recommend Picasa Smile.

  34. Just seen this on Pinterest - to you it will seem ages ago (nearly a year !!). I have a technique class next weekend and included 'band-it' technique, sponging or brayering whole band and over-stamping. This is stunning variation on what we are doing. I loved it so much, had to come and comment. Thanks.
