OLW14 - Square Outlines

Once again it's time for the One Layer Wednesday challenge from Simplicity by LateBlossom. The challenge this week was to make a square card and to use an outline stamp (coloring of image optional). YAY! An easy one! I used a Hero Arts outline stamp ...and being me, I had to add a little coloring. I strayed away from white paper this week. Don't know why, it just seemed like the thing to do.

This card is a 4.25 x 4.25 card. I stamped the image in a cocoa brown (Memento ink)a little off the edge of the card, and then lightly highlighted the lines with a matching color. This card is actually pink, but for some reason it photographs with an orange tint. Oh, well...use your imagination...it's really pink. LOL

I decided to give it another try, using a bigger card. This card is 6 x 6. Of course, since I made it so big, now I'll have to make an envelope for it, or maybe I'll just hand deliver it. Same process for this card, only I stamped the image several times.

I really enjoyed these cards. I might just have to make a few more. Now that I think about it, they would make a great gift set.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time.....

Hugs!

What a beautiful flower and I love it stamped on the pink. Both of the sentiments are so nice. They would make a nice note card set.

Wow, that card is a stunner! I love the subtle color you added, am going to have to try that type of restraint on some of my coloring!

Susan, it's gorgeous...well, they're gorgeous. The technique I love. I think I've done that to some degree but they don't turn out this good. Love how you stamped off the page...definitely going to try that.

Susan, both are absolutely beautiful! I love that your base is not white and the sentiments are great, too. They would definitely make a lovely gift set!

Both of your cards are so beautiful! Really like how you only colored in a portion of the image...really makes them pop off the card!

Highlighting the lines was a great idea for a way to put some WOW into what otherwise might have been boring. A one-layer card with no embellishments and no coloring.....it can't get more boring than that, can it?
