Best Wishes

Hi!  Just wanted to do a quick post to share a card I made for a couple of challenges.  It's another one layer.  Surprise, surprise.  LOL!  I just can't help it. I love my one layer cards now!  They used to scare me but not anymore.  :-).   Take a look...

So, I masked off a section and sponged spiced marmelade and mustard seed Distress inks and and old pink ink, blending them.  I spritz some water on to create the water droplets.  I stamped my foliage (Fiskars) in black.  I wanted a couple of dragonflies too but I didn't have any that were small enough. But then I received the Lotus stamp set I won from Waffle Flower and there are two small dragonflies  that come with it. Bi used the smaller of the two and it was perfect!  I removed the mask created a narrow strip on one side and sponged black in an ombré look.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment (SU! Retired) in black.  Love how this turned out.  :-)

Well, that's all for now.  Thanks for dropping by and have a wonderful day!
