Yay today is the day for one layer cards! Lol I've been eyeballing Jennifer McGuire's Ombre Stamping technique for a while, and I just got the stamp set in yesterday, so here we go:
I really liked how this one turned out, even with hand-drawn bows and strings lol. That's a Simon Says Stamp set "Ornaments", and Verve greeting "Joy to the World", Memento inks and Filigra embossing powder. This was actually my planning go on a piece of plain cardstock, I liked it so much that I went ahead and mounted it on a card base. When I go into production, of course, this will be a one-layer card.
I also tried out another idea, and this one is getting there but is still not the card I have in my head. I dry embossed a Spellbinders frame around the outside, and used Paper Smooches' A Blessed Christmas stamp and die set. I colored it with Spectrum Noir pencils because I didn't know if alcohol markers would soak through. I think my next iteration, I will try Distress Markers. Here is my card:
I like the basic clean and simple idea, I just think it lacks a lil something. What do you think?
Anyhoo, these are my cards for the day, thanks for looking!
