"Look mom no layers!" Sometimes simplifying a hand stamped card is harder than it appears. To create visual dimension and layers that we as paper crafters love, it's really tricky to stamp "just a card." And that's our challenge to all of you this week at #TGIF211.
My one layer card is made with Thick Whisper White Cardstock. First I pounced some Pool Party Ink then Pear Pizzazz Ink to add a quick background of color. Next, I stamped the bird image and greeting using Momento Black Ink.
I colored the birds, branch, and leaves with a variety of Stampin' Blends in soft brown, blue, and green tones. To give the birds a bit more visual impact I lightly painted them with a wash of Whisper White Ink. Last, I ran the entire front through the Subtle Embossing Folder.
