Happy Saturday everyone which means new challenge time over at Less is More. It's that dreaded week again....One Layer Week...and this week we would like to see...
I've chosen green and blue tones for my DT card this week to create a card suitable for a girl or a guy. There was lots of masking required for this one and a little time spent under a heavy pack of cardstock to remove the slight warping from the heat embossing, but I'm really pleased with the result.
I started by stamping the sentiment in the centre and heat embossing in white. Next I used large post-it notes to mask the edges before ink blending the central rectangle with Distress Inks. I then placed a splatter stencil (another wonderful goodie provided by STAMPlorations, one of our June sponsors), in various positions, masking around the area I wanted to use, and blended the same three colours but with a lot more depth. I finished with a few splatters of ink mixed with a little water.

My fellow LIM teamies have created some great cards this week so if you have the time I'm sure they would appreciate a visit from you.
I only had time for one DT card this week as I've had to cram lots in before I head off for a few much needed days away. Not far, only Dorset, but it feels more like a break when you actually stay away for a few nights :)
I have a few blog posts scheduled in a couple of days so hopefully Blogger will behave and share them with you.
Thanks so much for popping by today x
