Finally got around to making my Simply Less is More #19 entry - OLC framed. Been away over the long weekend and have been catching up ever since.
Right, quick post so I can have some time to go visiting the undoubtedly great work of the other LIMettes.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - making OLCs is hard work!!! There's no room to hide 'mistakes'. This is my second attempt and I can tell you, "aargh" and "gah" were constantly uttered. Still, I'm smiling now because I've left it well enough alone, i.e. I've declared it done.
I do like layering inks on and nothing like an OLC to to get that going. You wouldn't think there's so much product on this but so it is. Here are the deets:
TH Distress inks - Old Paper, Shabby Shutters, Broken China; Stampin Up Soft Suede, Versamark
stamps all from SU:
SAB Bliss (butterfly), Teeny Tiny Sentiments, French Foliage (so faint you can hardly see the script but the raindrops are fab, don't you think?)
Perfect Pearls (sprayed on from a mini mister to echo the raindrops), gorgeous gorgeous DMC metallic floss, 1/8" circle punch
The floss would not stay still and was so hard to knot (slippery stuff) so I used a technique I learned from Jennifer McGuire. Punch a small hole through which the 2 ends go through and get knotted - after you wrap the floss around, that is. This works really well with ribbons and especially on a scrapbooking layout. That string will not move.
