Recently, I've been rather hit and miss with some of my favorite challenges, so I'm trying to get back in the groove this week. I always enjoy playing along with the One Layer Wednesday challenge because it really make me think about how to create something unique on just one layer of card stock.
This weeks OLW challenge is hosted by Heather Telford at Bits and Pieces. Heather has challenged us to create a one layer card and to sponge on some ink in the process.
For my card this week, I decided to use a stamp that I've had for a while, but never actually inked up. I remember that I really had to have this stamp! LOL!....and now I'm so glad I got it, because I love how this card turned out! The trees are all one image and it's a Memory Box stamp. I stamped it first on a piece of scrap paper to get the right curve for the snow because the trees don't go completely across the card. I masked off the "ground" and the moon, then sponged on some DI (stormy sky and dusty concord). I moved my ground mask down a bit and sponged in a couple of snow banks, then added a line of embossing under the scene. Using my stamp-a-ma-jig, I stamped the trees right at the top of the snowbank (in black), and then added a little "snow" to the trees with a white gel pen. I also added a few stars in the sky with the gel pen. The sentiment is from PTI (I actually cut one of the sentiments in half ~GASP~ before stamping!)
Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments are always welcomed and appreciated! Until next time...
