As soon as I saw the Less is More Challenge this week I knew what I wanted to do.  I've been wanting to try embossed Nestie frames again for a while, I've only tried it once so far.  I also wanted to try colouring up a sunset with ink and then stamping in black with my new Meadow Breeze set from Inkylicous.  I used a Brilliance Aurora ink pad and it has given a lovely pearlescent sheen to the background.  I'm quite pleased with the result.

The sentiment is very slightly blurred at the end so I will stamp it onto another piece of card and stick it over the top before I put in my 'for sale' box.  Thank you very much for looking, I do love all your comments and I try to visit as many people as I can.

Edited to add:  I printed the picture on a separate piece of card and stuck it to the embossed nestie circle which I embossed straight onto the card, hope this isn't cheating.  I put my nestie on the inside of the card so the embossing is embossed on the outside rather than debossed, if you understand what I mean. 


  1. This is really lovely, you have achieved a superb effect with your sunset.Is it masked or did you add the image on a separate die-cut?
    I love that Inkylicious set, I find mine so useful.. but hadn't noticed what it was called!
    Thanks so much
