I am always scouring the internet for inspiration on how to create simple cards, for example one layer cards, which for me is nail bitting because I like to create a bit of mixed media on my cards, tags and canvases.
Recently Shery from STAMPlorations and One Layer and Mixed Media Blog has been creating one layer cards, so I took head and starting to think about how to create my CAS card, which I would like to enter sketch #13 on Shery's Challenge Blog which I am a guest designer.
Well here is my simple one layer card. Click on photo for details on pretty colored flowers.
Here is the inside and angled to see the sparkle of the copper/gold paint on the sentiment
A simple one layer card made on white card stock. Stamped with StayZon Jet Black and Versafine Vintage Sepia using stamp set Steampunk by Inkadinkado.
Its funny, my initial thought was to stamp the corner gears in vintage sepia but when I started inking and stamped already in black, it hit me then. But I thought, why not, do the reverse. I think it turned out alright. Looks much better in real life.
I would like to enter my card in the following challenges :-
STAMPlorations - bi weekly sketch #13
Sisters of Craft - June Anything Goes
Crafting at the Weekend - challenge 2 Anything Goes
Suzy Bees Blooming Challenge - challenge #32 Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Blog - Fathers Day/Masculine

Cool, now I am happy...another CAS card on the way.....
Seems forever before I get my distress markers, maybe next month......
