I had some time to just stamp last week and I wanted to join in the April Challenge from Where Creativity Meets C9. Their theme this month is One Layer. Sounded right up my alley! With a one layer card the whole focus falls to the image so I choose the beautiful Hello Lovely stamp by Concord & 9th. I really do love it!
Once I had the stamp chosen, the fun was in the colors. I used a light gray card stock and this gorgeous purple pigment ink. It happens to be a sneak peek of a new release coming soon from Clear Snap. Pretty, isn’t it?! The nice part about pigment ink is the strength of color and how it embosses. I just heat embossed with Clear embossing powder. All the work here is done by the great image and the ink!The sentiment for this comes from a holiday set (also C9), O Christmas Tree. I love when sets have purposes beyond the holiday! After cutting the panel with a stitched rectangles die, I thought the card needed just a little more. I recently won some beautiful sequins from 28 Lilac Lane (designed by May Flaum) and the Mixed Berry set went perfectly with the ink. I added a few just to give an extra something to the card.
