CAS: One Layer


Week 267 at Less is More is the 'One Layer Challenge' with the sentiment being the main focus of the card.

You would think that making a one layer card would technically be the easiest sort to make ... oh no!!!  I have a pile of failed attempts and I'm still not happy with this one.

My one layer card :

 
The background was ink stamped, using Memento Dandelion and Rose Bud, with a very old embossing folder from Darice. The watercolour effect is the result of spraying water onto the ink in the folder before printing the card. The border was stamped in Memento Gray Flannel using a Papermania Capsule Geometric Mono stamp (this really could do with a strip of ribbon or washi or something to hide the disjointed joints between the stamping, but I thought that would be classed as embellishment). The sentiment was stamped in Ranger Jet Black archival ink, using a stamp from the same Papermania set.

Thanks for stopping by and looking!
xoxo
