Single Layer Card

Today's Challenge (over on The House that Stamps Built) is Designer's Choice. Donna picked "Single Layer Card" as the theme for this week.
I have to admit this one was a real challenge for me! I'm one of those card makers that likes to add layers and embellishments, but it was a lot of fun creating outside my normal "comfort zone."

To create this card:
  • Stamp and mask off 708-K, Rebecca and 2704-H, Sailboat
  • Color your background with watercolor paints (I used a set from Sonnet)
  • Stamp 1507-J, Grass Border in Tuxedo Black Ink (Memento
  • Free hand some flower stems with a sharpie marker
  • Remove masks and color your images (and flowers) with Prismacolor pencils
    • Blend with Q-tips and baby oil
  • Stamp the sentiment 1905-I, Be strong . . . in black ink

  • For my blog readers: Enjoy the 10% discount code to the Repeat Impressions Store posted on the sidebar
  • There's a new challenge every week over at  The House That Stamps Built 
    • you don't have to use Repeat Impressions stamps to link or win
  • One lucky person will win a $25 Repeat Impressions Gift Certificate on the first Wednesday of every month

How pretty - love the beautiful scene you created with Rebecca - reminds me of so many books that I have read. One layer cards seemed to be a challenge for everyone, so glad we had this challenge.

You have created a wonderful summertime scene, love the coloring too! I am with you, I love layers so one layer cards are hard for me also!

Donna said...

This is gorgeous, so many fabulous details on one layer! One layer cards are not in my comfort zone either, that is why I picked this for the amazing inspiration of my teammates!

Wonderful one layer scene, Esther! Your colors are so bright and cheerful.

Heather said...

Beautiful!! Your scene works with that Rebecca image perfectly!! And what a great sentiment to pair with it!

Cheri said...

I'm such a romantic, and your card makes think of a book cover and now I want to read the Perfect detail and beautifully done, Esther!
