One Layer Card

 Good Morning everyone.  

Today im sharing a very rare one layer card for me.  So again i dug out the inks, stencils and a couple of stamps.

I first folded a piece of CraftUk ltd smooth white card in half for my base.  I stamped the flower stamp to the left side and masked them with pebeo drawing gum.  I then inked up the background with original distress inks in tones of greens, i then splashed with water and dabbed dry with tissue.  I then stenciled over the top with Oxide inks in the same greens. I splashed some ink over the white section just to tie it all together.  I then removed the masking gum to reveal the white untouched flowers.  I coloured these with Clear wink of stella pen so they glitter in the light.

I then stamped my 2 lavinia hares, i used my stamp platform and over stamped them a few times to get them a nice solid black.  I then doodled in some ground for the flower & hares with a black fine liner pen.  I then lightly stamped in grey a dictionary stamp for the ground.   

A close up. When i took the photo i hadn't decided on a sentiment but then a friend had a little accident so sent it to her to give her a smile hopefully.  

Hopefully you can just make out the shimmery glitter of the clear wink of stella pen i added to the flowers.

Honeydoo flower stamp
Lavinia Hare stamps
Stampin up Dictionary stamp

Congrats on making such a superb one layer card. The background has so much detail and interest with the srencils, blending and then those splashes. Wow to adding your own doodling-this sure scares me but you are an expert. Thanks for joining Time Out
