One Layer Flowers

The theme over at LIM this week is to make a one layer card with flowers. In general I try and avoid those challenges. But I got started, preparing myself for several attempts ending up in the bin - but HOORAY - I made it on the first go and I think my card was finished in 15 minutes or so! Very good for my one layer confidence, lol. And I don't think I used much mote than 5 minutes in preparattion, I found the stamp I wanted to use and decided on a layout.

I used a Penny Black stamp, clear embossed it and colored it with brushos (green, purple and black). A splatter ended up on the white space, but for once a little booboo didn't matter, I just added more splatters. The sentiment was part of a freebie set that came with a recent magazine.


This card is for:
Less Is More - #293 One Layer
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Nature
Penny Black and More - Add a Sentiment

Well, after the comment you left on my blog today, I think you have it wrong....this is an amazing one layer card. You have the design just right, lots of white space, added interest with the difference in colour plus an extra little splatter for your own special flair. I absolutely love it Pia x

I haven't use yet brushos for watercolouring inside the stamps, thanks for the inspiration. Your one layer card looks very pretty, and your splatters are just perfect with these pretty flowers, such a lovely way to mask a blob! :D
I must learn making one layers, too... 15 minuts to finish sound so amazing! LOL :D
Hugs, have a lovely week

Beautiful one layer, Pia! I used to have this same stamp but I ended up selling it in a crafty second hand Facebook group because I never quite knew how to use it... You've done great job here.

So pretty and delicate and perfect for the occasion. Loving the added detail from the splatters too! Super CAS and thanks for playing with us at Less is More this week. Sarah

I think I'd eat a one layer card Pia sooner than attempt one!! Yours really is gorgeous though. The initial splatters were a 'happy accident' as they add to the whole arrangement. Nicola x
