One Layer Ink card

After a busy day saving the planet again and being a Sheriffs horse, I was glad to get home this evening and sit down.

Yesterday after playing with my brayer, it is still sitting on the table, so thought I'd have a go at the Less is More challenge of a "One layer card with Ink".

First I masked off a panel on a 5" square card of Whisper White with Post It notes. In it I stamped a Dovecraft fairy silhouette in Versamark ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This would then resist any inks that are put over it. I tried to brayer over the fairy with ink from a Big and Juicy but I got lines from the Post Its, so I re-did it, but this time sponged over the fairy with Orchid Opulence and Regal Rose.

This is the result, its very girlie and pink but I like it.



I like the simplicity of this style of card, and I like it better than my card I did for Make My Monday challenge so I think I will enter this card aswell.

I hope to have more time to craft tomorrow, but Mum and Ali are doing another car boot on Saturday so I've got to help sort out their treasures!!!  If you can please come back and see what I've done.

Thanks for all your lovely comments, I love reading them
