Guest Designing at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge!

This is my fourth post today!  Click on the links for my earlier posts:

The Mixed Media Card Challenge - Trees
STAMPlorations Inspiration #64

I'm thrilled to be guest designing at One Layer Christmas Card Challenge today!  Not least because it means I'm one more Christmas card towards this year's total :)

It's an Anything Goes challenge, so I used this gorgeous stamp from Stampington, masked the edges of my card, then sponged Distress Inks over.  I flicked some water over, then when that dried, I splattered some diluted white paint over, and highlighted some of the leaves and berries with a white gel pen.

Pop on over to the OLCC blog for some fabulous inspiration from the Design Team - thanks for having me, girls!


  1. This gorgeous detailed stamp is perfect for this one layer wonder! Really makes the card seem more complicated. Beautiful!
