One Layer Thanks


Here comes another one layer card.  I feel like I'm stalking the new One Layer Simplicity Challenge, but I do like making one layer cards.  But I don't think I'll be the record-holder, because I've just checked and see that quite a few of you are making multiple entries too.  Just shows what a great challenge it is, and how much interest the revamped version is generating - 100 entries and counting!

For this one I inked up an acrylic block with Distress Inks then spritzed it before stamping the block straight onto the card.  Once it was dry, I stamped the feathers and sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black.

I've used the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch, fairly literally:

  5. Another swell technique Shirley! You are on one amazing creative roll....so many different projects featuring the trendiest products and techniques!

    These distress ink colors really do make the awesome stamp shine! Love the off-center placement of the image, which is perfectly balanced by the sentiment! Another work of art that seriously needs to be framed and hanging on a wall :)
