OLW159- Free for All




Welcome to another OLW challenge (One Layer Wednesdays).  
This week the challenge is an easy one:

Free for All- you choose any theme for your one layer card

I chose to create a sympathy card using stamp floral stamps from Rubbernecker.  I love the watercolour look of these stamps and the great layered effects you can get with them.  This stamp set is a 4 part set so you are able to add different colours each time you stamp.  I use a combination of Distress inks and Memento markers to colour my flowers then added scoring lines at the top and the twine to finish off my card.   
Sorry for the dull, grainy photo....having issues with my camera.



OLW159 Rules

l.  Create a one layer card.  This is defined as a single layer of cardstock folded in half.  No other         
     layers allowed.

2.  Create a card of your choice.  Add a link to your card.  Remember to keep embellishment to a 
      minimum and NO ADDITIONAL layers of cardstock.

3.  Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button below.  If you link to your blog, please link 
     to the specific post and not your blogs main page.

4.  HAVE FUN!!  Looking forward to seeing what you create.

Thanks for a fun challenge, Karen! I am on vacation this week and am enjoying playing in my studio. Your challenge was perfect to create a couple fast holiday cards. Your project is stunning. The flowers absolutely look like you water colored them.
