OLW 101 Feeling BluePosted: August 15, 2012
Blue has long been my favourite colour so I thought a One Layer Wednesday challenge with blue would be appropriate. It is a very simple challenge: Feature the colour blue on your one layer card. You can use other colours too but Blue must be the star of the show! To create my card I masked the bottom of the card with a post-it note and then stamped the Penny Black stamp “Winter Ledge” twice, one in versamark, then again slightly lower in black. Next I embossed with clear e.p. I positioned a hill mask and started sponging the sky; when I was happy with it I repositioned the hill mask and sponged again along the edge of the mask to create a snow drift.
I might not get to visit your submissions straight away as I am off to Prince Edward Island with my daughter for six days. She is competing in the Canadian Youth Track and Field Championships and I will be cheering her on and snapping pictures. I look forward to visiting your blogs when I return next week.
I have another card below which I made for the Penny Black blog today. It isn’t one layer but it features the same technique and stamp so I thought I’d post them both together.
Rules for OLW 101
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half. No other layers allowed!
2. Make a card using blue as your feature colour. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.
3. Post your card online and link it to the InLinkz button below. If you link to your blog, please link to the specific post, not your blog’s main page.
