'Frame it' card

Hi everyone, hope you are all enjoying this fabulous hot 
sunny weather we have today LOL....I joke of course,
 more of the wet stuff again grrrr!!! Good excuse to make
 some cards anyway. Today over at 'Less is More' it's ....
Frame it !
"Some part of your design should contain a frame of some
 description, it could be stamped, drawn,  doodled, die-cut
 or whatever your imagination dictates."
I decided to do some  messy inking, using the 'dab inks and
 spray water on an acrylic block' method. Well that's what
 I call it  he he ! I am sure there is another word for it though. I
 then stamped a flower image , first in white and then in grey.
Hmmm the white didn't show up too well I fear. I should have
stamped more off to the side I think. I have now added a
 line to one side of the flower using my gelly roll glitter pen.
 Highlights it a bit more, is it better?? ....hmmm you decide :)
I added a sentiment after giving it the same 'inky' treatment too.
Have a great weekend everyone whatever you have planned :)

  2. Gorgeous card.

    Love your description of the 'dab it and spray' technique, I call it 'splodge, spray, fingers crossed'. Whatever, you have achieved a beautiful background for your stamp.
