Hello and Welcome
Some simple stamping today.  
I decided to just leave my card in black and white.
I think going to the beach is on a lot of minds especially when the weather is sunny and warm.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by cutting a piece of white cardstock and placed the Fishing Boats stamp into my Misti and stamped with some black. 
  • I cut out the stamped image and glued it onto a piece of black cardstock, then set it aside.
  • Next, I die cut a frame from some white cardstock using a die from Penny Black.
  • I glued the white frame to an A2 card then popped the image inside the frame.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Love this in the black and white, Karen! Looks like a sketch you would find in a gift store at the beach!

It is so detailed with the beautiful boats and the frame looks great Karen, and it is perfect just as is without any colour. x
