Less Is More - 2nd Attempt!

After looking at some of the other submissions which are fantastic, I felt as if I needed to to better - sounds like a school report!
A couple of weeks ago I stamped up some neglected images onto acetate, one a Crafty Individuals, I did make up. This one - Declaration of Intention - have loaned the stamp to crafty buddy Diane and can't remember who it is by - I had also stamped it onto some photo paper coloured with golds and bronze alcohol inks, and it was waiting to be put on the right card - I love this image, but - I think its the wording down the side - I always wonder if its 'right' for what I want to use it for - or is that just me! Anyway, I printed the sentiment onto the acetate, something I haven't done before and then put the images and backing paper onto the acetate card with brads. I added brown velvet ribbon to hold them together. Once again, a nightmare to photograph!

So 'not too bad' turned into a week long nightmare and I have turned into the worst blogger ever. I really must try harder next week!!
I am entering both of these card in the Less is More Challenge because my 2 efforts have got to be better than 1!

Thanks for popping by.

It's aways lovely to see you Avril - the trick is once you get going with the blogging is not to let it run your life! My hubby thinks I spend more time with my virtual friends than him, lol!!

I think I beat you to being the worst blogger, Avril, this weather is just too nice to be indoors!!
I love both your entries. the first one is stunning. The white stamping looks great and your flat bow is perfect.
This one is lovely too, the colours suit that beautiful stamp brilliantly.
