I have a simple design for you today and I turned on the camera while I was doing it. It’s probably something you have tried before but might be new to a few readers. I used washi tape to mask off a frame on a one layer hot pressed watercolour card base then created a watercolour background with distress inks and salt.
The stamps are some of my favourite silhouette stamps from the Darkroom Door ‘wildflowers vol 1’ set with a sentiment from a recent set ‘warm wishes’.
It was fun creating a one layer card again; some of you will remember when I was part of the ‘One Layer Wednesday’ challenge and ‘One Layer Simplicity’ challenge a few years back.
Let me know if you try this technique, I’d love to hear or see what you came up with.
Beautiful soft background and one layer card! Thanks much for the video.♥
I love these techniques. You’ve always been masterful with them. One layer cards seem very special to me. You can’t beat these colors, big hugs, and a dragonfly. Thank you.
Wonderful depth on this one layer card, Heather! It’s a beauty!
I love the background using the salt for added interest Heather, and the pretty Darkroom Door stamps you chose look perfect over the top, and thank you for the video. I was surprised that the washi tape did not stick too much and came away cleanly without any ink seepage. x
I can do this one with things I already have!
Beautiful, I love the silhouettes against that wonderful background. I am going to come back and watch your video when I have more time xx
I love your work, and this one is very nice! Thanks.
A lovely card Heather and another great tutorial. Thank you. You are so right; it is good to revisit techniques that we have forgotten to use of late. I feel a salty weekend coming on….
Thanks for the reminder Heather… your voice is so soothing. It also reminded me that I haven’t crafted a card in a long time. Between rock painting, renovations, moving and covid, I just haven’t really felt like making anything. You changed that for me today. Hope you are keeping safe
I am so happy you got inspired. It makes me laugh whenever someone mentions my soothing voice (you are not the first!) Sounds like you have been very busy; I’m glad you are going to find some creative time. Take care.
WOW this is so Pretty!
