OLC Thanks

Time for another great challenge at Less is More. This challenge is to make a "one layer card" that includes a "thanks" sentiment.

One layer cards are definitely challenging! You need a sterile environment free of anything that might touch the card front, this of course includes 'fingers'. Good luck with that one. There is no way to hide these smudges with embellishments or extra layers.  Please don't ask how many times I had to stamp this before a got a 'smudge-free' image. Grrrr

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

what a beautiful card - I love the over-stamping & monochrome always looks clean. x

Love this Marie and I feel your pain. Had to redo my card three times because for some reason I couldn't draw a straight line.

Did you have to sit on your hands after the stamping to keep from adding embellies!!! This is terrific Marie, those flowers are so pretty!!

Debbie said...

This is beautiful!!! I can only imagine how difficult it was for you to make a 1 layer card!! You are the queen of embellishing!

Gorgeous card, I just love the colours you've chosen!
Haha, I know what you mean with not getting any smudges on a one-layer card, it's a challenge just by it's self ;)
Thanks for visiting my blog once again :)!

This is lovely Marie. Glad to hear that I am not the only one that has trouble with 'smudges'!
Thank you for visiting my blog - very much appreciated.

LOL! No fingers allowed. They are always where I go wrong. Or the only time I manage to get ink on the acrylic cards aren't for the faint of heart! Love the layout on this one - so pretty!
