Look Ma, No Tape!

The great thing about having a clean crafting area is that it helps me focus better. I was browsing the incredible Susan Raihla's Blog the other day and saw a couple of challenges that I was definitely up for.

The first one is for Mark's Finest Paper. Susan's challenge was to use Gray, Lime and make the card One Layer. I wasn't sure I even owned anything lime! Luckily I had a copic marker and some ink close enough.



Stamps: Hero Arts Dogwood, PTI Gladiolus
Ink: Memento London Fog, Colorbox Fresh Green
Paper: Gina K


The other challenge is for her One Layer Wednesday. I found this picture as my inspiration. Rainbow Twine
Please don't look to closely at these cards. It's the first time I tried scoring on one layer and it ain't pretty. It was also the first time I used a template which I cut out using a craft knife. It wasn't pretty either. It's also dark and dreary today plus my camera is on it's last legs. But the good news is that these cards will be added to my box that I'll be shipping over to Operation Write Home.
Stamps: PTI Background Basics: Hearts, Love Birds
Ink: Memento: Angel Pink, Lady Bug, Tangelo, Canteloupe, Colorbox Fresh Green, Versamagic Night Sky and Pretty Petunia

  6. They both look GREAT. This is the most difficult card for me to make. I mess up 10 card bases for every good one;)
