Challenge 3 - Create a one layer Christmas cardHere's my card:
Supplies: Stamps (all Hero Arts) - CG222 Music Background; CL796 Peace Poinsettias; DC113 Let it Snow Stamp&Cut. Retired from Hero Arts' shop but all available at Simon Says Stamp and probably other sites.
Other - Copics; Stickles; Distress Inks; Distress Paints; Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
Cut a 4.25x5.5 white panel.
Stamp the poinsettia with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
Mask the flower and stamp the leaves (same ink). Using the MISTI made it so easy!!
Mask the flower and leaves, then stamp the musical background with Twisted Citron Distress Ink.
Once dry, sponge the background with Old Paper Distress Ink.
Add splatters of Picket Fence Distress Paint (I blotted any large splatters into blotches).
Remove mask & dry panel thoroughly (I left mine overnight).
Stamp the sentiment with Black Soot Distress Ink.
Color the flower and leaves with Copic markers of choice.
Ink the panel edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
Add Stickles to flower berries.
Adhere panel to an A2 top folding card base; I didn't stamp directly onto a card base since I knew I'd need to cover up the Copic bleed through - is that cheating for a one-layer? So be it!
Merry Monday had a one-layer challenge earlier this year and I hated my card! I'm hoping I redeemed myself with this one and am adding it to Lori's summer link up. The Merry Makers will be back with new challenges in September.
Hope Heather (and anyone else who wants to play) enjoys this challenge. Happy crafting and thanks for visiting!
