One Layer Wonder

Hello everyone! It’s funny how creativity literally has no limits. If you’re inspired you will make a card regardless of how much free time you have, or how tired you may be. That is my case today. I have a vintage one layered card to share with you. Oh I really like those, because it lets you spotlight techniques and stamps, and I love to layer stamps… With no further ado, here’s my card:

– Bo Bunny – It is Written
– Sweet n’ Sassy – Vintage Postcard
– Flourishes – Spring Bouquet, Cherry Blossoms
Brilliance pigment ink – Tiramisu
Memento dye ink – Rich Cocoa
– Embossing ink

– Distress ink in Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint, Vintage Photo, Old Paper
Other generic materials
Eggshell cardstock in white
I used a mask for the bouquet and stamped the vintage elements around it.  I colored the bouquet with distress inks, to get an undefined, grungy look.  I distressed the card from left to right, from dark to light. I blended my lighter distress ink (old paper) and left the right side of the card white, which adds softness to the overall design. Finally I added a one word sentiment.

I love how this card looks. I really enjoyed making it. I hope you like it! Thanks so much for stopping by…
