One Layer Challenge

I decided to make a card for the One Layer Challenge over on Less is More, and they also require that the sentiment be the focus.  I am not entirely sure if this will fit the bill, but I am posting it anyway,  because I like it!


Paper: PTI cardstock; Neenah Solar White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; CTMH Dye Inks; Adirondack Denim Dye ink
Stamps: Hero Arts
Other: Corner Chomper; Glossy Accents

This is another one of those stamp sets where I have only used one or two elements and had no idea how to use the others.  For a long time I wondered why would I want to stamp a grill on a card!  Anyway, today I did!  There must be a Dad out there who is passionate about grilling!

I stamped the grill image directly on the notecard, and then I stamped it again on a seperate piece of paper and coloured in the portion I wanted with my Copic Markers. I then added some glossy accents to it, let it dry, cut it out and adhered it to the card front. 

I then did the unthinkable!!!  Can you guess? ....yes.....I did....I cut up my sentiment stamp so that I could have three pieces and be able to stamp it at a different angle and also in different colours!  Is that bad?!

Nice to see a clock on your blog Brenda - here it is 8:30 in the evening :) I saw this simple little challenge, loved how the sentiment should draw the attention, and you have done just that! By the way - what's cooking on the barbecue.. :)

Lovin' the GA on the barbie AND how you chopped up the sentiment and did the 3 colors :) It will be so much more versatile this way! I think it's perfect for LIM

Love this one-layer card, Brenda! It does expand your creativity with cutting the sentiment, right! I think it's worth the cutting and love how you arranged the sentiment in a playful manner!

I think that's a good idea cutting up the stamp so now you have the freedom to position as you wish. Super father's day card. x
