One Layer White Flower

SU Reason To Smile, only layer cards, CAS cards


LessIsMore wants a one layer card with a coloured background; OLW this week wants a 3" one layer card; SweetStampin wants CAS; Let'sCraft&Create wants a card "for the girls" and JustUsGirls wants a challenge using white ink.

The Reason To Smile stamp set is ideal for layering. It has a solid background stamp which I inked with Island Indigo (the same colour as my card stock) and an outline stamp which I inked in the lighter Pool Party and then stamped a second time with Stazon White. I also used a Marina Mist pastel crayon to blur the edges a bit and added some sparkle.

The sentiment is from the Just Believe set inked in Basic Grey.

For the first time in ages I have a free weekend - yippee! Which means lots of time crafting!!
