Tuesday with Tara {take 55}

Happy Tuesday!  I’ve got a quick & easy card for you today- a one layer lovely, which are very rare for me, but I saw a card that inspired it and it just didn’t seem to need anything else 🙂

love you one layer

All I’ve used for this card is a sentiment and the little flower bit stamps from the Avery Elle Oh Happy Day set I’ve been loving on lately, a selection of Distress Inks and a heart stencil (this one is by Dina Wakely).  It’s all stamped on an ivory card.  I used washi tape to adhere the stencil to my card front, then I started with the largest flower stamp and moved on from there to fill in the heart shape.  The rough texture you see here is a look you may be familiar with if you are using clear stamps without ‘priming’ them, but I kinda liked the look for this card.  (You’ll get a much crisper image if you ink your stamps in Archival black ink first, before stamping with water based ink.)

It’s a very simple card that you could really play around with a variety of color and stencil shapes as well 🙂

Hope you have a creative week!

Inky hugs,

Tara
