Nothing ventured ..... nothing gained !
I have been amazed by the one layer cards that I have seen around blogland recently - I love the clean and simple style but I have as yet been totally terrified to leave my DP's untouched and let my design do the "talking" !
Tonight I decided that nothing ventured nothing gained and set to rummaging through my stamps to find the perfect image.
I decided on this leaf image (positive and negative) from my ippity "should be" set and this gorgeous blue/green colour (mountain lake - versacolor) which I am loving at the moment.
I diecut one of my labels nesties and used it as a mask before stamping my images and sentiment but I felt it needed something else and couldn't add the buttons/ribbon etc etc that I normally would (only one layer allowed) so I added some paper piercing to the top left corner.
I am quite pleased with it - for a first attempt ! What do you think ?
I would like to add this card to the following challenges;
Crafty Cardmakers - One layer card
Spotlight challenge - Masking
Cupcake craft challenge - Pick your fav' challenge (# 26 one layer card)
Sentimental Sundays - Inky fingers
Thanks for visiting me today, I hope you liked what you saw x
