Serendipity Stamps One Layer Challenge

Hello and welcome!

I have a card to share today for the second of this months challenge over at 'Serendipity Stamps'. Mary has challenged us to create a one layer card using paper and ink only :).

I did some masking on this card. I stamped the 'marble cells background' over the top of the 'butterfly outline' die cut shape. I then used the negative die cut area to mask the background and sponged on some Milled Lavender Distress ink to create a solid butterfly shape.


The beautiful 'floral butterfly cling stamp' was then stamped over the top of the solid butterfly shape using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

The 'Thanks' sentiment is from 'Everyday Words Large Cling Set' - it actually reads 'Thanks so much!' so I've just inked up the one word.

I used a 'Perlen Pen' to add the cream pearl detail to the butterfly wings and to its body and also little touches on the sentiment.

The sale this week at Serendipity Stamps is 20% off the Thanksgiving Category and it’s good through Nov 28th. Follow THIS LINK to the Thanksgiving category to get this special offer.

Wow, you made a one layer card so intricate and that beautiful butterfly and the shadow of the butterfly behind the detailed version. Really great idea Helen.

Helen, I am so not able to do one layer cards! They just morph into something else every time. This one is so striking! Love that beautiful background paper.
