On the way to a one layer card

I so veered off course!  I was working on a card for my class homework.  The card type was building a scene using a foreground and background image to simulate distance. I cut my watercolor paper; happily applied lots of inks making a beautiful background for my images...I stamped the images and then, I realized I was way way way off of my homework assignment. Oh well!

I had cut my watercolor paper to act as a panel on a card before ever inking it. I mounted said panel, and them placed it on a card base...DEFINITELY NOT A ONE LAYER CARD.  Oh well, I was so pleased with the panel I finished the card with some dry embossing and a layered sentiment.

I am going to link this up to Virginia's View - Watercolor Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I will go back to homework and will have another post later tonight.

That touch of light blue is absolutely gorgeous! It's so enchanting, Cat! So glad that you have fun with the first Virginia's View Challenge!

I don't think you were way off at fact, I think your card is gorgeous, Cat! I love how you gently inked the sky, and your images are so pretty!

I give you an A anyway--LOL! What a neat looking card, Cat!

DOH! I do that all the time. In fact, I am incapable of working directly on a card base. I work on a 4x5 1/4 or 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 piece of card stock so I only ever destroy that much. THEN I stick it to a card base. In my mind, if all my work is one layer on that piece, then it's a one-layer card. So there.

Next time, ink the pink (hey, that rhymes) instead of layering it, then it's sooooo close to one layer it should count.

Oh Cat, what a beautiful design! Your inking technique is incredible and the pink matting is perfect! I agree with Greta - this card definitely deserves an A!
