Hey everyone! It's that time again for another challenge over at Inkspirational! We have an awesome inspiration picture for you. Take a look...
Isn't it great? Now I had all these ideas in my head for this one but do you think I was able to pull any of them off? Nope! I had such a hard time this challenge! So, I decided to scrap my initial ideas and just go with the colour scheme (black, purple, white) for my card. Here it is...
I masked off my area and sponged perfect plum (SU!) ink in an ombré effect. Then I splattered some water and white and silver paint. I made the splatters fairly subtle as I didn't want to make them too busy. Then I stamp my foliage (CAS-ual Fridays) in black and grey. I removed my mask and created another to sponge in black a narrow strip on one side. Then I stamped the sentiment (CAS-ual Fridays). Despite how long it took me to get to this card it turned out rather nice, didn't it? It's a one-layer too!
So, I hope you will all join us and play along. You have to check out what the other DT girls made too. Awesomeness abounds! Plus, we have a wonderful Guest Designer, Karen, of Made by Meadie. Go leave her some love. Her card is fantastic!
I'm going to link up to the following challenges:
Crazy For CAS - anything goes
Addicted to Stamps and More - anything goes with optional twist of love.
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day!
Wow Kim, a one layer beauty! I love one layers where you sponge an area and stamp on it, leaving the rest of the card stylishly white... I think you'll be seeing these from me in One Layer Christmas when we start! :) Have a great weekend and Merry Christmas! :)ReplyDelete
