One Layer

Another new to me challenge is the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge. It runs bi-weekly and this is the first one of the new year. The theme is anything goes, with an optional twist of using red; the challenge runs to the 19th of January.

One layers cards are tough for me, but I thought I would give it a go.  I so loved this Lawn Fawn stamp set that I picked up during my fall trip to visit my Dad. I didn't play with it nearly enough during my Christmas Card making frenzy in November.

My images were colored with pencils and blended with gamsol. I added a bit of red WOS to my cardinal- my very favorite bird. The background was sponged and I did some masking as well. I just love that font!

Thanks for stopping by!
