LIM - In the Frame


This week it should be simpler as we have a definite CAS challenge... 
it's ONE LAYER WEEK again.

Our challenge is entitled 
IN THE FRAME
We would like to see a frame of some sort or something in a frame... we'd like you to be as inventive as you like.

This is the first effort for this challenge.
The stamp provides it's own frame :-)
All I had to do was colour it!


which I did with my Copics


I then stamped the sentiment straight onto the card.





This is my second attempt.
I've treated the frame as an image in itself.


I used 2 different but similar gel pens to colour in the frame, 
this gives a bit of depth to the image.
I can't get it to photograph but the gel pens give a sheen to 
the colour, & shine in sunlight.
To finish I positioned & stamped the sentiment directly onto the card.

Working on a couple more ideas atm......
Will see if they work out....
