You've been framed

And another one for the masking/household object challenge. Nice idea in principle but you can see that I didn’t wait long enough for the Two-Way glue pen to dry before I applied a paper mask. Consequently, removing the mask tore the cardstock – doh! The wooden frame is made of cocktail sticks, lashed together with linen thread and trimmed with very sharp scissors. Still haven’t found the bits which went flying across the kitchen.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Linen Thread, Pumpkin Pie Grosgrain Ribbon

  1. I LOVE this one! CC

  2. *thud*

    Absolutely stunning - I am completely stealing this card!!! So clean and simple but it still has that *wow* -- amazing!

  3. Oh, how cute! The simplicity is very nice too.

    And I hope you don't step barefoot on the little pieces that flew through your kitchen!

  4. That card looks so Asian... the love the bamboo like border made of toothpicks. So creative!


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.
