OLW 59 Inspiration challenge

I enjoy playing along with the One Layer Wednesday challenge when I can which hasn’t been lately.  This week Susan provided a pretty photo of flowers in jars to inspire us.  I decided to use the colours and the flowers but not mention the jars.

The technique is nothing new for me; same old masking and sponging that I love to do.  I sponged a hint of a hill this time not the well defined slopes I sometimes have.  I also sponged a hint of sunrise by leaving a little white space unsponged.  The white flowers were embossed in clear before the sponging and everything else was stamped over the top of the sponging.


Stamps:  Pocket Silhouettes, Short & Sweet
Inks: Yoyo Yellow, Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, Versamark
Cardstock: Flourishes Classic White
Also: Clear e.p.

    I will never tire of your sponged scenes Heather and I have to say it’s my favourite technique as well. There’s something beautifully nostalgic about the light effect you created on this one. vx

    Stunning! I love the sun peeking out over your countryside of plants. The darks and lights of the plants look so good with the clear white ones. I like the softer mounds in place of the masked hills in this instance. Lovely card.

  12. Oh my goodness, Heather! You never cease to amaze me with your beautiful and elegant designs. This is gorgeous… I truly love it.
