Wow, who would have thought making a single layer card could generate so much “giddiness!” My wheels really turned to design this card for the Paper Players Challenge; I can’t remember the last time I did a single layer card – whew! My brayer was lying out from my class, so I thought I’d try brayering a “framed picture”. I used my scallop die as a mask while I brayered Daffodil Delight, Tangerine Tango and Melon Mambo. Then I gently daubed in each opening to be sure the inking was even for my frame. After removing the mask, I stamped my images and did a bit of coloring – voila! The bottom needed a touch of something, so I grabbed my $1 stamp that I picked up at the check out counter the other day, inked it with Tangerine Tango and then clear embossed it for a subtle accent.
CARDSTOCK: Whisper White (that was easy!)
INK: Black Stazon, Tangerine Tango, Stampin Up markers: Believe it or not there are 14 colors used on this little image – basically choose a light, medium and dark of each color group. Real Red was used for the heart
SUPPLIES: Brayer, scallop oval die, big shot, blender pen, clear embossing powder, heat tool
