One Layer Wonders?

So. One layer cards are a relatively new thing for me. I LOVE them, they just are a bit challenging for me! So, when my FAVORITE one layer challenge, OLW, returned and then I saw the One Layer Projects challenge over at Wee Memories, I knew it was time for me to return to my new pastime! The OLW challenge this week was coloring--use a line image and color it in any way you want. I used that as the basis for my two cards.

Here is the first~

I punched out a strip of scallop edge and sponged the edges for the frames in these cards. Not sure if this technique is already named, but I'm dubbing it sponge masking...I'll come up with something better later...unless you have the real name for it? I then stamped and colored in the images with blender pens and then added dimension with a glitter gel pen.

Closer look of the glittery leaves~

And here's the second card--I LOVE this one better. It's just prettier in my opinion. I made the first one with the leaves since fall is coming...but I LOVE this poppy image.

Poppy PRETTINESS~

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my creations! I love having you here! Happy stamping!

Wow Mynnette these are both GORGEOUS! The leaves are so pretty and sparkly but I must say I just LOVE the poppy card! The deep red is so rich and just pops right off the card! Have a wonderful weekend :)

Both of these are pretty, but I think I like the leaves better with the scallop edges! Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a lovely comment.
