Just the one layer




This week at Allsorts the lovely Jo is challenging us to make a one layer card and our sponsors are Craftbag.

I love making this style of card using Pan Pastels, masking a section in the middle and round the edge of the reverse side of a piece of Centura Pearl and stamping the scene which in this case is repeat stamped with a Clarity stamp for the focal element then adding the PP's. The faux layer effect is achieved simply by using Copics and a ruler, I find it easiest to start from the outer edge and work inwards.



And another using exactly the same technique but this time using Chocolate Baroque's lovely Tuscany image and sentiment.

Happy weekend all.

  1. These are lovely cards Brenda. LOVE the deer, we have lots around at the moment and they always seem to hedge hop as I am riding down our lane, thankfully Surprise is used to them now!! Your Tuscan scene reminds me very much of the chick flick "Letters to Juliet!" in which the scenery is beautiful. Wishing you well xx

  22. Two beautiful cards Brenda, love that silhouette scene, and Italy sounds great right now, I could use a little bit of a vacation :-)
    What a great idea to use a copic to mimic a strip of paper, I thought it was card stock.
    Hope you have a great weekend!!
