One Layer Thanks


Happy Saturday!  Let the crafting time begin.  Today I am playing along with the Inspiration Challenge  at Splitcoast based on a Pinterest board.  Pinterest has so many inspiring and wonderfully done boards; I don't know why I don't have one?  (inspiration photo below)  I also wanted to add a card to our 
NEW OLW (one layer card) blog.  
This card came together easily by first masking the main area so I could sponge it with Distress inks in Ripe Persimmon and Squeezed Lemonade.  I love the warm glow especially on such a cold, wintery day.  While leaving the mask in place, I inked my flower stamp by colouring on it with Memento markers then spraying with water before stamping to give a watercoloured look.  I added the doodled lines then stamped the sentiment.
I so appreciate that you came by for a visit.  Have a great weekend.

If you get a chance, why don't you visit our new blog found here:
