Barb G hosted a scramble over at the Hero Arts Flickr group, Saturday the 17th. She gave us instructions to make a true one layer card. No additional layers from Washi Tape, Die cuts, Sequins, Gems, etc. We were allowed to use Glossy Accents, Enamel Accents (Ranger), Stickles, Wink of Stella, embossing powder, embossing paste and glitter.
I will admit this truly was a challenge for me. I am a layers person, I love ribbons, gems, and dots.
So, I pulled out three stamps, an image Butterfly from CL750(HA), a sentiment Time to Enjoy F1843(HA) and the dotted path from Circle Friends SSS101309(SSS).
I had a prefolded note card, and I stamped my sentiment...crooked...arrghhhhh. I turned the card over and restamped the sentiment with a stamp positioner. Good...then the butterfly with the positioner...it did not stamp well and restamping even with the postioner...yuck! So, I turned the note card over again...
This time I started with the butterfly, then the path, and then the sentiment. Hooray...no smudges or light spots. The butterfly I colored with Distress Markers: Salty Ocean, Broken China, Tumbled Glass, Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Spiced Marmalade. I added some black dots with a micron pen and then lightly washed a bit of wink of stella over the orange parts. When all was dry, I put the card on my scoring board and added a few score lines to give some texture.
I couldn't leave it as it was, after all the scramble was over and it was posted...so I added some color and some dots with my yellow wink of stella pen.
Thanks for stopping by!
