Fountains abbey

The challenge 7 at Less is More is for a masculine card - while I have been making some recently, they did not really fit the CAS requirement!
This set of stamps by Crafty Individuals features Fountains Abbey in Yorkshire, a really beautiful place to visit if you are that way, looks much better in rubber than on my photos! I stamped the base card with a  script stamp from Artemio using tea dye DI, which was also sponged around the edges. The stamping was in black versafine, and the separated images mounted onto copper card - it needs a greeting, but I haven't found one that fits yet..............

  7. A perfect card for a man Veronica. Fountains Abbey is my favourite place to spend the day. There is something really special about the place no matter what the season so these stamps were perfect for me.

    I have hundreds of photos taken at Fountains as somehow, I just can't stop clicking when I'm there, lol!

    Love the script background.

  8. Versafine ink pads are really fantastic for picking out the detail on a such a stamp. I really love your card especially how you have used the copper mirror card which pops the images off the card. Just stunning:-)
