Cocktails and Rainbows

Morning all. It's a lovely suny day today in contrast to the thunder storms we had yesterday evening! It's also time for another challenge over at Less is More and this time the theme is a one layer card 'in the frame'.

Here's mine:


Just for a change I have used Crumb Cake card and stamped my frame, image and sentiment in Versamark ink and heat embossed using white powder. The frame is from one of the sets in the new mini catalogue Sew Lovely and the cocktail and sentiment are from one of my favourite sets Cheers to You. Once I'd embossed it all I coloured the image and frame using a blender pen along with Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and Pumpkin Pie inks.

Taking of the storms last night, I was amazed to see two rainbows together. I had to hurry to get a photo as we were putting the boys to bed and I had to lean out of their bedroom window to take the pics! I hope you can see them both, the lower one is so much clearer:


Hopefully now I'm back off holiday I'll be able to get round to some commenting this week!

  2. This looks great Victoria, the white embossing is really effective and the colouring looks great. I saw two rainbows when we were watching the cricket at the Rose Bowl the other night... fortunately rain didn't stop play!
    Your pic is beautiful, I'm glad you didn't fall out of the window!
    Thanks so much
