One Layer Get Well Card

Because of Hero Arts One Layer Challenge I've gone from never really making one layer cards to thoroughly enjoying trying to come up with ideas for these type of cards.

I don't seem to be able to put the Large Petal Background away for very long before I want to ink it up again, so here I go with yet another card using this stamp!


Stamps (Hero Arts) - Large Petal Background and Everyday Sayings


For this one I die cut a square out of a piece of scrap paper and used the sheet of paper as a mask when I applied VersaMark to the card front. After embossing the image I again used the scrap paper as a mask and applied a variety of distress inks (barn door, spiced marmalade, mustard seed and peacock feathers) to the card. Once the mask was peeled away again, I drew a frame around the image with a fine tipped felt pen and then stamped the sentiments. When I make cards I usually end up adding bits and pieces but this time showed a little restraint and only added stickles to parts of the image. I find it really hard to take photos of anything glittery so the photo below doesn't really show the full shimmer on the card but gives a little idea of what it's like.

As I used a clear stamp and diamond stickles which is fairly clear, I'm also submitting this card into Simon Says Stamp Let's Be Clear Challenge.
