Frame It!

Good morning fellow stamp lovers! I woke up to yet another day with glorious sunshine and warmth, it's really making wonders to my mojo, I have more ideas than time at the moment, wonder if it works to write them down for later use? Maybe ideas are like delicate vegetables; they will wilt if not used at once, lol.

At least I have framed one of the ideas with good help from a few challenges:
Less Is More: In The Frame
Just Us Girls: The Woodgrain Technique
Penny Black Saturday: One for the guys

And a small double check; yep, there's a lot of fabulous white space, the camera wanted to make it blueish greyish whatever I tried, we're not on a friendly basis today! The woodgrain technique is used, but with blue colours. And I really hope this will work for a male as it's intended to a loved one, at least the frame is male enough.

I used:
A Prima frame with black Memories Ink
Color Box Inks and Chalks for the woodgrain technique
Penny Black flower vase from the Illumination set and text from the Hugs set
Liquid Pearls

Enjoy your Sunday,
lot's of love
