LSC # 63 One Layer

YAY! It's time for a new Lawnscaping Challenge. It's all about creating a one layer card this go round!!  What?? One layer?  It seems doing one layer cards can be a challenge - which is true - but I feel if you think about how you would create dimension one others ways like masking - or doing even CAS cards - you've achieved the goal of mastering a one layer card!!

Here is my card for this week's challenge!  I actually enjoy the thinking process of what I will create when making a one layer card.  For this card - I started out by masking off a section of my card base with some masking paper on a diagonal and then I grabbed some of my favorite Distress Inks - Peacock Feathers, Picked Raspberry, and Chipped Sapphire and blended them little by little all over my card base.  When I finished I just sprayed some water in my hand from my mini mister and flicked the water onto the card to create the water droplet effect since these inks are awesome when reacting with water.  
I then took the "glow" circle image from Summertime Charm and stamped it randomly all over the card base - I even did stamped off once after inking my stamp and interlocked some of the circles.

I carefully removed my mask ( this is when the magic happens!!) and then I stamped my sentiment Grand Greetings.  I like the overall look to my card!!  Hope you do as well!!

Be sure to head over to the blog and feast your eyes on all of the awesome creativity from the DT, and keep your eyes open to FB as my teamies and I bring you additional inspiration through out the two weeks of the challenge!!
