OLS 13 You Blend

You Blend OLS13 Heather Telford

I can’t remember the last time I managed to participate in a challenge so I am happy to be posting a card for the One Layer Simplicity monthly challenge. The challenge is to blend something on your one layer card. I pulled out a new die called ‘framed flowers’ and used it to cut a mask. I added post-it notes all around the edges of the die cut mask so I would be left with just the rectangular image. My blending was done with memento inks and sponges, one of my tried and true techniques. My colour scheme was inspired by the current Runway Inspired Challenge #77, which is why I went for a black sentiment where I would usually just repeat one of the colours in my image. I like the black, it provides a nice contrast and I love the new set it came from, ‘snippets’ which has thirty-one little sentiment stamps. Thirty-one! Yay!

I hope you get a chance to check out the entries on both challenges and get inspired to play along.

    Very pretty design to do that technique. I think this would work well by using a stencil too.

    A beautiful CAS creation Heather. I like your idea of using a die to make a stencil to ink through, and it has worked fabulously. x

    I really like this with the black sentiment. And you can never have too many sentiment stamps, I find.

    Lovely. This is one of my most favourite color combos!

  9. Heather, as always, you wield a sponge like no one else!!! This is gorgeous, particularly in its use of white and how it bleeds off the focal point into the surrounding space. LOVE this!!!
