I just wanted to share a quick card with you today. Recently a Facebook group that I'm in, Comnected Inspirations, had a Pinterest Challenge to inspire the members to create a one layer card on Kraft cardstock using white ink. I really have trouble with one layer cards! I just want to keep adding more, lol. However I was pleased with how this one turned out.
I started off masking an area at the top and bottom of my card and stamping a wood grain design. I found that the white ink I was using just didn't provide enough contrast, so I ended up white heat embossing my stamping. The Be Happy stamp is by Pink and Main from the Believe Script set - one of my favourites!
Inside, I used another sentiment from the Believe Script Pink and Main stamp set, adding more of the little stars.
The flower and butterfly stamps are from an older Magenta stamp set I had. After heat embossing I used some Distress and Tombow markers to colour in parts of the images. I love how the white Distress Marker looks on the Kraft cardstock. Then, I used the Dylusions white paint pen to draw some lines and faux stitching around the card. I'm going to have fun using this paint pen!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you get a little crafty time for yourself this weekend!
