I've found a little crafty time today and I've got a one layer card to share with you.
My initial inspiration for this card was the new challenge at Less is More which is to create a one layer card with splatters.
I recently made a purchase of my very first distress inks, a few packs of the mini ink pads. I don't know how I've managed to last this long without purchasing any! I've still got lots to collect but I wanted to use some of them for the first time today.
Here's what I created...
I started by blending some lilac ink through a stencil to create the vertical lines. I then watered down the pink ink on an acrylic block and splattered this on the card by tapping a paint brush. I then did the same with the green ink. I was then impatient waiting for the watery ink to dry but didn't want to use my heat gun for fear of warping the card so I picked it up and wafted it around like a fan...what a great idea as I then created the runs in the green ink! Once completely dry I stamped the sentiment and little sunburst flowers in black ink.
- Stencil: Memory Box - Scraped Paint

I am also linking this card up at the following challenges:
Fantasy Stampers - Challenge #34 - CAS
Brown Sugar - Challenge #141 - Distress
Happy Little Stampers - April CAS Challenge - Stenciling
One Layer Simplicity - Challenge #15 - Blowin' in the Wind (hopefully wafting the card to help it dry will count! lol)
I'm hoping to create more this weekend so I may be back again later.
