Less is more,and some vintage,makes

Morning guys well at last the sun is out,and its lovely and warm at last been fed up with all this wet and dull weather so hope its here to stay.
Well I saw the girls over at less is more had a sketch this week,I messed up last week so was determined to make good this week well Hope I have.
So I have made, 2 cards this week with this great sketch I just used squares instead of circles,


I have used,my craftyindividuals stamps,then on the first one I have stamped onto archival coffee ink,then embossed some tiny squares to look like a film strip thingy you know what I mean.
Then the second one I have stamped onto,some txt SU paper,then stamped in vintage green vivid ink. Matted onto some mirror card then just raised the middle one on 3d foam pads.  Oh across the middle of the card I have stamped directly onto the card using paper to form a straight line.

Next I played with my large favourite wooden stamp  Inkadinkado and made this vintage card,the base card is hunky doory,first time I have purchased any of there stuff and must say the quality is fantastic really chuffed with it. so here it is.


I have inked the edges,with old paper,and tea dye distress inks,added flowers,the txt is from the waste I had from my CAS card,so used that up,then just matted and layered onto gold mirror card added some lace also distressed.  Then just added some,pencils to the face,of the lady.
So that is it,all my follwers have gone walk about rrrrrrrrrrrr I have,2 new followers but who they are have no idea,so sorry guys welcome to my blog will pop over when my list returns hopefully.

Really fabulous work Cheryl and even your less is more look a bit vintage with those gorgeous CI stamps.
My followers went walkabout too but they're back now and I think yours are as well - just a blogger hiccup!
Have a great Sunday.
