OLW79 - FIVE Stamps?!?!

This week's One Layer Wednesday challenge is hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink.  This week's challenge is a doozy...at least it was for me.  Our challenge was to use at least 5 different stamps on a one layer card.  One layer cards are a challenge in their own right...now I need to make one using 5 different stamps..WOW!  I gave it some thought and this is what I came up with. Not very original or different, but the best I could think of!

This first card was made by masking off the center section and sponging on DI in peeled paint, wild honey, and broken china, then I stamped it with the four different stamps from the SU Pocket Silhouettes set, plus Flowers in Silhouette from SU. Adding the sentiment from PTI and that's a total of 6 stamps! Yay, me!!


This second card was created with the same stamps, I just used different DIs for my sponged background.  I believe I used wild honey, rusty hinge, and broken china DI for the background.  Didn't much care for how this one turned out...but it's different and I used 6 stamps!



I think this last one is my favorite from these three.  I masked off the bottom of the card and used 5 different stamps from the PTI collection Peaceful Gardens.  I stamped the plants in varying shades of green and then added touches of brown.  After stamping, I sponged a little darker green at the base of the plants, then sponged in a blue sky with tumbled glass DI.  The sentiment is also from the same PTI set.  I added a scored line under the scene and stamped the sentiment below the line.  In retrospect, I should have left the scored line off...it didn't add a thing, and I think it looked better before.


That's all for this week. This week's challenge was definitely difficult for me.  Maybe I'll do better next week!  Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it when you take the time to leave me a comment!!

Hugs!

That third card is AWESOME! Your clouds are beautiful and I love the tiny garden. The sentiment is wonderful too. I like the other two and thought of using this set myself. I think I like the colors on the first one best, but I'm sure that both would be a treat to the recipient.

They are all wonderful Susan - especially the last. Stamping a garden is such fun and much quicker than growing one!

I actually thought about using the same stamps as in your top two cards. Great minds think alike!
