One layer only!

Hello my friends,

Today I had a go at making a one layer card using some masking and inking. I was inspired to do this when I saw Jan's card here at this weeks Make My Monday challenge. I loved her distress inking and decided to give it a go. I am a little afraid of this and was unsure it would turn out o.k. I used 'broken china' distress ink,blending tool and post its to mask off the strip and I am actually quite pleased how it turned out. I loved the inspiration picture this week at paper smooches sparks so decided to go with butterflies, plus to me, the prominent colour in the photo is blue. I have used one of my much inked paper smooches sentiment. And here we go:


And as my butterflies are flying up and up I am going to enter this into the Casology 'up' challenge. And at Addicted to stamps and more the challenge is CAS, so naturally I have to enter!!

Here is Jan's card

                            

Have a great day x

  12. How creative to use post-it notes to mask off the strip. Great job on the one-layer, and that blue against white really pops! Glad to see you crafting again!
