Woo, hoo! It's Sunday and time for another Paper Players challenge! This week the amazing Ann Schach has a One Layer card challenge for us. She rocked the last one! Though I love one layer cards, I tend to be a 'lots of layers' girl. So I fully anticipated having to make a few cards before I created one I was happy with. Much to my surprise I was pretty happy with the first one, which was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest.
This is card making in its purest form: just stamps, paper and ink. Don't look too closely as it is not a perfect creation, but I think I did pretty well considering I left the Stamp-a-ma-jig in its holster. Plus, if it was too perfect it would look like it was made in a factory. At least that's what I tell myself! There I go justifying again!
I've always wanted to do a card with a hand drawn outline. First I stamped my images and my greetings, with a little mask at the bottom so the stems all ended in sort of the same position. Then I measured in from each corner and made a little dot with a pencil. I connected the dots with a Stampin' Write Marker, then made a squiggly dot at each corner. Such fun!
