In the words of our host, Susan.... "This week's One-Layer Wednesday (a.k.a. OLW) Challenge is to use two colors, two images, and masking. Sentiments are optional but must be in one of the two colors, just to make the whole thing more
diabolical, um, challenging."
I do believe diabolical would be the better choice of words! I definitely struggled with this challenge. First of all, I rarely stamp in colors. I use a lot of color, but normally the color is added with my Copics or Prisma pencils. Stamping color never looks right to me when I do it! But, always willing to give each challenge a try...here's my efforts!
This card was my first try, and I totally didn't like it, but thought I'd post it anyway. The butterfly isn't bright enough, and the "trail" is too dark...hmmmm...on to the next try.
I think my biggest problem was the fact that the stamping had to include masking. I tried to think of something I had that would work with masking and stamping...and I was at a total loss. Then I decided to give these Technique Tuesday images a try...still not happy!
I decided this would be my last effort to make something that I liked. I used PTI stamps for this card. Stamped in Memento cottage ivy and cantaloupe, then added three scored lines to ground the image. Although I wasn't totally satisfied with any of these three, this third card comes the closest to making me happy.
These last two weeks of OLW challenges have really been challenging! (guess that's why it's called a challenge, huh?!)
Thanks so much for stopping by!! Appreciate all your comments!! Until next time...
