HERO ARTS - One Layer Challenge


We're home for a short while before going back to the beach so I thought I would make a card for this months Hero Arts Contest which is to create a one layer card.  You can see all the details HERE.

I decided to use a lovely Poppy stamp by Hero Arts for my card:


Apologies for the photo quality but it's evening and one of the light bulbs have fused!

The stamp I used is called Poppy (H5904).  The sentiment is also Hero Arts from an older set called Special Note of Thanks (CL499).  I added a bit of Pumice Stone Distress ink through a Tim Holtz stencil for added interest.

Now I am off to bed to go and read a little!  Have a wonderful day!

Hi Brenda! This one layer card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the soft stencil background (a cool section of it, love the fade out) and that poppy is so pretty! Hope all is well for you!
