Don't Forget.....you still have time to leave a comment for the drawing on the 31st.....Take a moment to leave me a comment on this post. I'm going to be giving away a nice gift card to one lucky person in celebration of my 4 year anniversary as a blogger. Couldn't YOU use a gift card for craft goodies??
I think we're getting back on track with out One Layer Wednesday challenges. This week, Susan has challenged us to create a one layer card using only grey and white with a "pop" of color. Here's my take on the challenge this week.
Okay....so I have absolutely NO stamping on this first card....yep, that's right! This card is complete computer generated with my Silhouette software. The lacy images are actually cutting files that I have filled with grey. I did the same thing with the sentiment. I made my paper size the same size as an unfolded card base would be (4.25" x 11") and then arranged my elements to fit the right hand half of the paper. Printed it out on my ink jet printer. I was actually just playing around with this to see if I could do it, and lo and behold, it makes a right "purty" card! I added a couple of teal bling pieces for my pop of color.
The second card is virtually the same thing, I just used a different cutting file to print onto my card stock and added a few pieces of red bling.
For my last card, I decided to play fair and use a stamp with some grey ink. I used the SU big medallion stamp...inked it up with Memento's London Fog ink. To get a good clear image, I inked the image and leaving it face up on the table, I placed the card down on the stamp and rubbed it to transfer the image. I did the same think in the upper right corner of the card. The sentiment is a SU sentiment that I've had forever!
When I first saw the challenge, I really thought these would be blah...yuck cards, but I really like the end results!
Thanks a bunch for stopping by! Love all your fab comments!! Until next time....
