Happy Thursday crafty people! I hope you are having a great week. It’s a gorgeous sunny day here in Scotland and we have a four day weekend to look forward to, what more could we ask for?
Today I’m sharing a one layer card, which is not something I do very often…. like almost never! I used a record stamp from an old magazine freebie set and I used memento black ink with clear embossing powder to give it a glossy look like a record. Then I used some washi tape to create a wide stripe. I had to make my masking wider using two lengths of tape as my first attempt I went over the edge and made a mess!
Then I used my lovely new make up brushes to blend some distress oxide inks over this panel (from the bottom I used blueprint sketch, salty ocean, cracked pistachio and twisted citron). I added a few splashes of water to lift the colour and then removed the tape. I finished off by colouring the centres of the records with the matching colours before stamping “Happy birthday”.
I hope that you like my simple one layer card. I think I don’t tend to make these as I’m quite messy and I end up wasting card blanks (as I did in this case!) but maybe I should work on being a little more precise and try out a few more one layer designs.
Thanks so much for visiting the Ginger Ninja Crafts blog, I hope you will say hi in the comments. Have a fab evening whatever you are up to.
