OLW 20 Three Plus One

This week Susan’s One Layer Wednesday challenge is to use three images and a sentiment.  If possible avoid embellishments, but that isn’t mandatory!  I have two for this challenge:  same layout and technique but different colour schemes.  If you have visited here lately you will see I am still masking and sponging.  As the current Speedy the Cat’s Friends Challenge is to use fall colours, I will participate in that one too.

To create these two cards I punched the squares out of  post it notes to create the mask then sponged and  stamped the images before removing the mask.  I am enjoying stamping in autumn colours but in real life I am clinging to the last days of summer; perhaps that is why I did one in summer colours as well.


Stamps: Garden Silhouettes, With Gratitude, Upsy Daisy, Hugs and Wishes
Inks: Summer Sun, Really Rust, Chocolate Chip, Bashful Blue, Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic Ivory
