Flowers - One Layer Card
This card if for the Crafty Cardmakers #50 Challenge and what a challenge it was too. The one layer technique is exactly what it says - put your image straight onto the card blank with little or no embellishment.
For this A5 card I chose to use the Donna Dewberry one stroke painting method. Unlike Sheena Douglass' paint fusion technique, this is done without the aid of the safety net of using stamps to give you an outline to paint. This is done entirely by hand starting with an clean sheet of card!
Once the paint had dried overnight, I tinted the edges with Dusty Concord Distress Ink and stamped "With Love" in the bottom right hand corner with green ink. Stamp by Sheena Douglass.
I only started trying this technique last weekend so I am delighted with the results. I hope you like it too.
