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...
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.
