Kristina posted a One Layer Card Challenge this week, and I think this card proves that all you need to make a great card are stamps, inks and paper (in this case, plain white!). This is a single layer card (no extra stuff glued on top) and the colours and stamps are the focus. Masking is a great technique to use to add dimension to a single layer card... usually I sponge inside the mask, but for this card, I wanted to contain the stamping. I stamped the Crushed Curry blob first, then put on a rectangle mask (a post-it with a rectangle cut in it) and stamped the rest of my images from Extreme Elements. I left a blank spot for the FYI (stamped in Jet Black StazOn). I took off the mask and stamped my skateboarder in Jet Black StazOn as well, and then stamped the second part of the sentiment outside of the stamped block.
So what do you think? Does this card need anything else?
supplies: Stamps (Extreme Elements, Extreme Skateboarder, FYI); Inks (Crushed Curry, Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry, Sahara Sand, Jet Black StazOn); Whisper White Notecard.
