I got an email recently from my fellow
asking if I'd like to play along with her
Well, you know I am always up for a challenge,
so of course, I said yes. :)
Marcie sent me this photo to use for inspiration to make my card:
Isn't is pretty and fun?
I was all set.... when Marcie added another aspect to the challenge:
a one-layer card.
While I love CAS cards, I rarely make one-layer cards.
But a challenge is a challenge, so I decided to go for it.
Since I had my MFT Flashy Florals kit on my desk,
I decided to do some masking with it.
I love the fact that the image is on sweet blush background,
so I pulled out a piece of sweet blush cardstock for my background.
To stamp my colours onto my coloured background,
I used my MISTI and stamped the images first in Wplus9 white
and then stamped it again in colour.
Well, with so many layers stamped onto the mask over the yellow
flower, when I pulled it off, the green inks had soaked through. :(
So I diecut the one bloom from sweet blush cardstock, started over
with stamping the flower and then adhered it over my botched flower.
The sentiment is from PTI's Songbirds.
Okay, so because I failed with the one-layer card, I started over.
This time, I decided to use Concord & 9th's Flourish stamp set -- no masking necessary!
I used the same technique of stamping the stamps first in white
and then a second time in colour.
I stamped the sentiment from PTI's Choose Joy.

Thanks for looking!
