There is a new Ning group for those of you who love to make crafts with paper! It is called Lady Annes Paper Crafts. As I said, brand new, so I thought I would join and give it a trial run by entering the first challenge. This challenge is to make a card with ONE layer (so no adding paper layers) and ONE embellishment. A little tricky at first, especially as I am so used to putting layer upon layer and adding a few embellishments. But, nothing is impossibe and here's my card!
I used the Dandelion image from Digistamps4Joy, changed the black lines to sepia on the computer, then copied the image 4 times, and printed these onto white cardstock. The next thing I did was to use 3 different colours of spritzes and I sprayed these around the image, and a quick squirt over the image. I then stamped the words I Love You (an old rubber stamp I had in my stash) and embossed this with gold. Still only 1 layer!! Then I added my embellishment - a chipboard fairy that I glittered up with gold glitter. This is still ONE embellishment, so no rules broken here! Finally I chalked the edge and stippled around the sentiment. So a simple card, yet quite a bit of work, and it required concentration to NOT add layers or more embellishments.
