It's a new year!! We start the year with a clean slate. I can use a white piece of paper as the metaphor...so you get the idea! I like to reflect that sense of cleanliness on my cards. These cards were made for the One Layer Wednesday Challenge (see boot camp). The challenge is to make a card using ONLY ONE image stamp and a maximum of two ink colours. You may use the same image repeatedly, but you may only use the one image. You may also use one sentiment stamp if you choose. Oh, and no embellishments! So with that in mind, I came up with a CAS design. In fact, Once you have the idea, it's so easy to make more. So I ended up making 3!
Here's the close-up for each one
To keep the card simple yet not overly boring, I paper-pieced holes underneath the scored line
I really enjoy doing these "exercises". I always love layers in cards, but one layer card is just so fun to create. It really forces me to focus more on the overall design.
In 2011, I hope to challenge myself more and hopefully I will create cards with more depths and thoughts.
Have a GREAT week ahead!
