Is that a word? Scripting. Spell check thinks it is. The Less is More challenge this week is to use
on a one layer card
Here's the first one I did.
Well, it's not actually the first one. Or even the third one. You wouldn't believe the trouble I had doing a card for this challenge! First I stamped the sentiment crooked. On a one layer card, that's it. It becomes trash. On the second try, not only did I stamp the sentiment crooked, but I smudged it too. On the third try, I had the script all wonky. Note to self. When using a Stamp-a-majig, be sure to restamp on the plastic thingy when the stamp has been removed from the clear block and replaced. LOL, I can't believe I did that when I had been warning people about doing the same thing during a class the day before!
I gave up on that design. Actually, I was able to save the design from the first card and you'll see it on another card later this week. It's not a one layer card anymore.
So, on this card, I just stamped the script once and the flower overlapping. Then I used my Stamp-a-majig to draw the lines around the script. It works really well to draw straight lines.
I really wasn't happy with this card so did another and I think I like this one better.
The leaves are starting to pop out on the trees around here, so I stamped these leaves from the French Foliage set in Certainly Celery, masked them and stamped the script in Crumb Cake. I scored a couple of lines above and below the design and inked just the sentiment on one of the Perfect Punch stamps with Marina Mist to brighten it up a bit.
When I was driving down the Interstate on Saturday I saw a whole field of blue. I'm not sure what the flowers were, but it looked like a blue carpet and the contrast with the Spring green was lovely.
I usually like to do one layer cards, but this week I really struggled. Next week that's probably all I'll want to do.
