This weeks challenge is a single layer card with embossing. I don't know about you, but I find single layer cards more challenging. You can't hide behind layers of nestabilities and embellishments. So good to get back to basics now and again.
|Painting with Powders|
This technique is known as "Painting with Powders". I stamped the image (Hero Arts) with Versamark. I then covered the bottom third with Golden Sand embossing powder (all Stampendous powders) and tipped off towards me. Next I used Caramel and tipped off over the first colour. Finally I used Periwinkle and tipped that off over the first two colours. I find that gives a more graduated join of colours. I was trying to create a kind of hillside effect with the blue sky behind.
The sentiment and small brown flowers came from a Dark Room Door set I have. I sponged the edges of the white card blank with Stormy Sky Distress Ink.http://simplylessismoore.blogspot.com/2011/05/week-15-one-layer-card-embossing_14.html
