Aren't these colours yummy?
Last time we had a colour challenge, I had a go at a CAS card, but it just didn't work, so this week I was determined to try again & this is the result:-
Woohoo, I have made a one layer card!! I started with a sheet of white Bazzill, so at least I had a little texture. I have added wavy Espresso stitching lines with a clear cling stamp & then added punched flowers, with pearl centres. I have also added a little heart which has been covered with a bitty button, tied with embroidery floss. The sentiment has been stamped directly onto the card.
To raise the flowers & the heart, to give some form of dimension, I punched the corresponding shapes from very thin dimensional dots. This lifts them up off the backing card & leaves a nice neat finish but gives them a good firm grip.
Here's a neat tip when working with skinny stamps - I find they are prone to "rocking" & giving a poor imprint, so when working with a narrow stamp, I add another uninked stamp to the block (use one from the same set so it is the same height). This will result in a nice flat stamp surface & a clean stamped image.
