This morning kicks off a brand new challenge week over at Less is More and dare I say it....it's time for the shuddersome One Layer challenge! Whether this fills you with dread or if you can't wait to play along, we have an easy peasy theme for your OLCs this week...
I only have one card to share with you this week but I've used images of my absolute favourite flower from my favourite season, Tulips. I just love seeing Spring flowers after the dull, grey, wet winters we have here in the UK.
I started by masking off a horizontal section of my card base with post it notes and blending green Distress Ink up from the bottom of the panel, and blending purple down from the top. I then stamped the tulips, the flower heads being two-step stamping. I thought this had a lovely peaceful feel so I chose a sympathy sentiment. I wanted to add a little more interest so I used a die to create the dotted rows above and below the inked panel. I was a little worried the card might lose some stability by die cutting the dots but as the cardstock is 300gsm it's still nice and sturdy.
