Party, Its your Birthday! card for Newton's Nook one layered challenge


Here again to share another card for the Newton's Nook One Layered challenge.
Really loving this challenge, although I did find it difficult in the sense if I screwed something up I couldn't cover it up with another layer:p

Inky Paws Challenge #18 - Just one Layer | Newton's Nook Designs

I started off with some 120lb white cardstock from Simon Says Stamp and masked off the edges with some painters tape. I stamped my images on the card and on some scrap paper to be able to cut out and use for masks. I colored my images with Copic markers and then covered with my masks using temporary adhesive. I then used a chevron stencil over top and sponged with some lavender and mint ink in random areas, not covering the whole card. I then took off the stencil and continued to sponge with same colored inks. I took off the masks covering my images and the tape covering the sides, stamped my sentiments and that's it! That finishes my one layered card:)

Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the sweet comments you leave me, it always makes me smile so thank you ever so much. Hope you all have a lovely weekend!!

  1. Such a cute one layer card. Love the chevron stencil & sponging. And, I agree with you that that's the challenge about one layer card - not being able to cover your mistakes if you mess up. Your one layer card is flawless though. :) Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Your card is absolutely adorable! Your background looks amazing and you did such a great job masking. So much depth and detail for a one-layer card. Have a great weekend! ♥

  3. Love your chevron background!

  4. this is so lovely! I love the pretty chevron background and the hot pink balloon you colored for the kitty! They look like they're having a great party! Thanks so much for playing along with our inky paws challenge at Newton's Nook Designs!

  5. Shannon this is some incredible masking. What a cute and gorgeous card all at the same time!
