Card Recognition

I find one layer cards challenging, so I thought I'd throw my hat in a couple of challenges this week, Less Is More and Lawnscaping are both doing on layer cards.  Less Is More wants you to use ink in a new or favorite way and I've used distress inks and a water color pen to color in the dragonflies, which I think is a great way to get a subtle use of color.  I've used the sketch from Skipping Stones.  Check out their fabulous Blogs 4 Boobies blog hop.  And then I got inspired after I made this one and made a second one with Lawn Fawn stamps.




Materials: PTI Happy Trails dragonflies and sentiment, Tim Holtz Distress inks (Aged Maghony, Tumbled Glass, Weathered Wood), Versamark, Versafine black ink, Fiskars corner rounder punch, PTI kraft card stock

Lawn Fawn Swim Suit season, Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It, Tim Holtz Distress inks fired brick and worn lipstick and antique linen, Versafine black ink, Recollections black rhinestones

Two very nice cards. I'm currently trying my luck at one layer cards, and I agree they are challenging!
