When I saw the Colors for the ColorQ challenge this week, Espresso, Cajun, Saffron, Artichoke, Kraft & White, I immediately thought of Pocket Silhouettes. This wonderful set of little foliage stamps works so well with multiple colors.
Then when Jennifer posted the One Layer Wednesday challenge and said to use at least 5 different colors of ink, I had the colors all lined up!
Now the challenge was to get them all on a one layer card.
I made a mask and sponged an area on the front of the card with So Saffron. Then I stamped the different flowers & foliage in Crumb Cake (formerly Kraft), Always Artichoke & Cajun Craze.
The Early Espresso went toward the sentiment. I must confess, it took three tries to get it somewhat straight. I can stamp it straight on the scratch paper, but not on the card. Go figure!
Then I used an acrylic block to guide my Espresso Marker around the design, leaving the design area kind of hanging free. It's still not perfectly straight but it is handmade after all!
