Less is More Week 19 - One Layer

This weeks Challenge from Less is More is one layer but in a frame. As usual the Limette insomniacs were off and running before I had even had my first cup of tea!! Some lovely submissions which are well worth visiting:)
I decided to do a couple of small cards using some judikins stamps, Travels in India and Carol's cube and a postage frame stamp from the same company.
I stamped the frame first and masked it off so that I could sponge colour inside. I then stamped the main image in black Brilliance.






The larger card I stamped and embossed a Creative Expressions bargain stamp from Ally Pally with gold EP and then cut out the middle frame to create an aperture. I lightly pencilled the shape on the inside and stamped again with versamark and gold EP. The flowers were coloured with promarkers.
Apologies for the photo quality but my OH is decorating and keeps turning the power off!!!!!
Thanks for looking:)
