Hello friends and welcome! Today’s cue word for the monthly challenge in “One Layer”. And I did just that! This is difficult for me. I always love to add dimension to my cards whether that be with layers of cardstock or using foam adhesive. But honestly, I think I nailed it with this card!
I started by making a card base out of watercolour paper. I’ve never done this before as I think it’s a waste of valuable paper, haha. But in the end, I think it’s awesome and the only way to achieve an actual one layer card. I used the You Make Me Smile stamp set from Gina K Designs as my focal image. I used Versafine Smokey Grey Ink as I wanted to go for a more vintage look rather than stark black.
For the colouring, I used a set of Derwent water-colour pencils. I also had some help from my cat, Francis!! After the colouring was done, I used some masking tape to mask around the image.
You can see I’ve chosen Tattered Rose and Antique Linen Distress Inks. I used these to add colour around the image. After removing the tape, it leaves a gorgeous frame/border.
I stamped the sentiment from the same set in the same Smokey Grey ink. And that’s when I called it done! No other embellishments added…which is also difficult for me!
I love how this turned out and hope you do too!!
