Less is More wk32 - seeing double

I've made a quick card today for the new challenge at Less is More, which is 'seeing double' and also one-layer week.  Well, it should've been quick, but the first attempt went wrong so this is the second version...


I've wanted to have a go at drawing a frame with a fineliner like this for ages, but I suspected it probably wasn't as easy as it looked... and it wasn't... well, not for me anyway!  This one isn't perfect, but it's a lot better than the first card (now in the bin).

The flower stamp is from a Pink Gem set, stamped in 'rose bud' memento, then masked and stamped again in black versafine.  The sentiment is Personal Impressions and I've added a card candy centre to the flower because none of my buttons seemed quite right - even though I've got hundreds (probably more like thousands!) of the things.

I'll keep this short so I can do a bit of commenting, as I'm very behind again!

  18. I really like the look of the frame, but I would probably get it all crooked and such, so I haven't bother to try one yet...but yours sure does look awesome!
