Buy It - Try It : Less is More challenge - Snow

I haven't entered the LIM challenge for ages, but this weeks prompt for a one layer card is anything to do with snow....... I can do that :-)  It just so happens that I have these new snowflake stamps from Visible Image, so this counts as a BITI as well.

I stamped the pink snowflake, then stamped again on scrap paper and cut it out to use as a mask.  The snowflakes were then stamped in purple and the sentiment (Stampin Up) went over everything in a much darker shade of purple.  I wanted a frame to connect the elements and was stuck for a bit as I didn't have a pen which was a dark enough purple.  Then inspiration struck and I scored a frame using my Hougie board.  It's a a little imperfect down the right hand side, but not too bad.

I should use both masking and scoring techniques more often, it always amazes me how good they look, whenever I re-discover them :-)
