the one layer challenge just ended here, but i was still feeling the love!
i know, they can be scary (especially for me! no foam, no paper piecing...no sequins?!), but it's ok! i have a couple ideas that are perfect for one layer cards! you may even grow to love them! (anything is possible, right?) ha ha!
but i didn't just make a card, i made bookmarks too! :) i loooooove to read, do you?
i used lots of lawn fawn stamps (critters ever after, bon voyage, plus one, gnome sweet gnome, a birdie told me and, of course - harold's abc's).
i stamped everything onto some super thick white cardstock (with staz-on ink). then i colored all of the images with my inktense pencils. lastly, i took the bookmarks to staples to have them laminated (to make sure they have the power to last)! :)
for my card - i decided to try my hand at the chalkboard technique. i'd say i still have some practice to do, but it sure was fun!!
here's how this card came together:
i heat embossed the images onto black cardstock.
then i stamped in white ink, the same images, but slightly offset.
then i added some smudges of 'chalk' with my white ink pad and a make up foamie-thingy.
you could stop here and have a super fun smudgy chalk-y card. or you can add color! (which is what i did)
i made some color shadows on the letters, and colored in the frame with my inktense pencils, then rubbed the color with a dryer sheet. (weird, right? but it was on my desk, and it worked!)
so my finished card looks like this! :)
alright! there you go! a few one-derful one layer ideas! i hope you're getting crafty this weekend! and make sure to have your lawn fawn stamps, paper and ink ready for the newest lawnscaping challenge, coming your way on monday! :)
