PTI Make It Monday Challenge #154 - Colour and Texture on a One Layer Card

Last week on the Papertrey Ink blog Erin Lincoln shared a video showing how to get lots of texture and colour onto a one layer card. You can check out her video here .

I knew that I'd struggle with this challenge as I love to have lots of layers on my cards! Then I remembered the "Lovely Layers" stamp set and knew that it would be perfect to use for this.

I started with smooth white card and Limeade ice ink and stamped the largest  image all over the card, making sure that the corners just touched as I stamped each one. Then I moved on to Simply Chartreuse ink for the frilly leaves and Ripe Avocado ink for the veins of each leaf.
For the flowers I used Winter Wisteria ink, accented with Royal Velvet ink (for both the large and small flower images. I wasn't happy with the white spaces left, so I used Ripe Avocado ink again and the larger leaf vein stamp to fill in the gaps. I thought that this looked a bit like stalks for the flowers too!
The sentiment is from the "Boutique Borders:Birthday" set and I stamped it with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with WOW Purple Glitz embossing glitter powder. You can just see how this sparkles in the photo below.

I stuck the stamped panel onto a square Royal Velvet card blank and was pleased with the finished result. At least I should be in time to link my entry up to the PTI challenge this week!


  1. Wow Lynn, that is so clever. So beautifully stamped - you are a brill stamper.
