I have been trying out more one-layer cards and find that it helps me think MORE on the design elements of a card. This time Jennifer at One Layer Wednesday # 40 challenged us to use two (and ONLY two) image stamps on your card. That’s right, just two. And no sentiment. You may not use each stamp more than once.You may also use the following AND ONLY the following: heat embossing and/or markers to colour your stamped images. (edited note: I think I didn't get this rule right....oooops!!) I had to put my thinking cap on and came up with TWO cards with different style and takes.
The first one is about using unusual combination--Hero Arts Buttons and Speckled Ornament. As you can see that you normally will not put the two together, but they "work"....I think.
And for the 2nd card, I also used Buttons and paired it up with my new HA stamp International Skyline. I embossed the image in white and stamped the heart button over and then I paper-pieced the holes and then stringed them up with a fine black pen (which I had done in previous cards--I should have tried something different here...oh well, next time!)
It's so neat to try a new and different exercise that makes you think. What stamps will you choose if you have only two stamps to use (and NO sentiment)? I wonder :)
