One Layer Home

Hi guys

Well, 8.00am on a Saturday means there is a brand new challenge over at Less is More.  And, just to cheer you all up, we are back with our dreaded (by some!) One Layer Challenge.  Our theme this week is...

Home


I'll admit I did struggle with this one, I love one layer cards but my stash was a bit thin on the ground for this theme but I managed to create two cards.  Here they are...




Lots of masking was involved with this card.  I started by stamping the curtains then masked these off before stamping the window frame in VersaMark ink and embossing with clear embossing powder.  The mask was put back in place so I could blend the sky through the window with Distress Ink in Salty Ocean.  I then stamped the vase and flowers and the sentiment below.  The sentiment is from the 'Home Sweet Home' stamp set by Woodware and all the other images are from Clearly Besotted's 'Window Dressing' set.

Here's the embossing detail...


I'm going to link this one up at the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Challenge #291 - Embossing
Happy Little Stampers - June Sketch Challenge














And my second card...


I started by using an MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle die to emboss the central frame, using an embossing mat with my Big Shot.  I then simply stamped all the image elements and sentiment using Clearly Besotted's 'So Tweet' stamp set and Versa Color ink.

Challenge entries for this one are:

Crafty Catz - Challenge #283 - Clean and Simple
Brown Sugar - Challenge #150 - In the Garden


Thanks for all your wonderful entries last week, the gallery was so pretty filled with sunset colours.  I hope you'll be able to join us this week.

  21. Two fabulous one layer creations! Love the embossing on the second for that added interest and texture.

  22. These are both so fabulous! Love the window scene and all your hard work with the masking certainly paid off. I always forget about embossing with dies, must give it a go. Add's a bit of interest but still keeping it one layer. It looks brilliant on your card and love the little birdhouse.
