One Layer Bundle Sketch

A tricky one at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog this week...the elusive ONE LAYER WONDER card!


So hard to do!!!  But here is mine...


I used the negative cut with the Petite Scallops Large Nestabilities to make the outside frame.  I placed the piece on the cardbase as a template and sponged around the inside using Antique Linen Distress ink.  The heart is from Sweethearts and the sentiment from Frame-It.


What is hard to see in the first photo is the knit circle from Faux Fun Circles stamped around the inside with pink ink!  I also used a glue pen to edge the outside of the heart, and then sprinkled some Crystal Snow glitter to make it stand out a bit.

I love seeing one layer wonders and can't wait to see the links to your projects this week!  Upload them HERE by next Friday, April 6th.  Be sure to include at least one Waltzingmouse Stamps image on your card to be eligible to be the randomly-selected participant who will win a WMS stamp set of choice!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Sweethearts, Faux Fun Circles, Frame-It, all Waltzingmouse Stamps
Paper:  PTI Vintage Cream cardstock
Ink: Fresh Ink in Pink Grapefruit, A Muse Studio Shell ink, Tim Holtz Distress inks in Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy
Other:  Crystal Snow glitter by Stampendous, twine, Spellbinders Petite Scallops Large Nestabilities

Wow Kelly you completely nailed this! I know one layer cards are tricky, but you have created depth here, which is so hard to do! Love the muted colours and the bright sparkly heart in the middle. I've been thinking about this all weekend! I have to be in the mood for a OLC!!
