Another frame stamp

April 5, 2010

みなさん、こんにちは! 日本では、この週末に多くの方がお花見を楽しまれたのではないかと思います。

Hello everyone! I hope you've enjoyed wonderful Easter holiday. We don't celebrate Easter in Japan, but I think many Japanese enjoyed "Hanami" on this past weekend.


I said that I had a plan to carve some frame stamps. I completed one of those and added an opptional element.
Here is a card I made with it.

カードのサイズは5インチ×5インチです。バックのペーパーがかなり派手(笑)なので、レイアウトはシンプルにしました。フレームと飾りのスタンプはバーサマークで捺して、ゴールドのエンボスパウダーでエンボスしました。フレームの周りの縁は、Antique Linen と Vintage Photoインク(Distress Ink)をスポンジでのせています。 エンベリッシュメントとして、レースとパールを加えました。
このカードは、今週のABC challenge(テーマは、「R is for red」)にエントリーします。

The card sise is 5" × 5". I kept the layout simple because the DP I used was pretty showy. The frame and the ornament were stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with gold EP. The edges around the frame were sponged with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo ink (Distress Ink) to tone down. I added some lace and chino pearls for embellishment.
I'm entering this card to this week's ABC challenge - "R is for red".

Thank you for stopping by today.
