One Layer

Simon's Wednesday Challenge is One Layer  I will be needing one layer cards to send into the prison mail.  One layer no embellishments.  That's going to be a challenge.  It will stretch my brain.  I was glad for this first challenge to get some great ideas from the cards posted.

I chose simple for the first one.  I used my MFT dies for my balloon and embossed the die shapes into the 110 pound white card stock.  The sentiment is stamped with versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. I used my distress markers scribbled on my craft mat to give the balloon a water colored look.  The white sentiment resisted the water color and turned out just as i wanted. I traced the "string" with a gray marker and added a hand drawn bow.  Using my very old cloud stencil from Stampin' Up I sponged very lightly with Encore Metallic blue. (my favorite sky ink)

  1. It's a very beautiful CAS card. Thank you so much for joining our 219th challenge at Word Art Wednesday this next fortnight. Your creation is inspiring, beautiful and very much appreciated. Blessings, Carole

  2. Hmmm.... didn't think you could send handmade cards to prison? Little bro was in a Federal holding prison so perhaps their rules are different. This is sweet though. I've seen store bought cards along these lines.
