One Layer Script

Hello! Sorry I've been a bit MIA--but as I explained over the weekend, I have a really busy week ahead and so I'm not sure how many cards I'll be able to make and/or post! But I do have a quick one for you tonight. I made it on Saturday and have hemmed and hawed about whether or not to post it. My DH says it's fabulous, so I'm taking a leap of faith that he's right! ;)

This is a one layer card for the current Less Is More challenge--one layer plus script. It was a struggle for me for some reason. Each script stamp I used looked HORRIBLE. Then I pulled out a Kaiser Craft image that I hadn't used yet (yes, I have stamps I've bought and haven't used yet!) and went with that. We'll see how you feel about it...

Here's the card~

Details~



I hope you like it. I heat embossed the image with black embossing powder, colored in the main images with blender pens and bold colors, and then sponged blue over part of the card to create a sky. I added a bunch of rhinestones for some sparkle at the end. Not sure if it was the right move. But I do love my rhinestones!!! ;)

Anyway, thanks for popping by and taking a look! I appreciate you for doing that--happy stamping! :)

I think you did a great job. The embossing and colouring looks very pretty and the rhinestones really balance the card. I would love to be able to master "white space'!

I think you should rely on your husband's opinion... he has great taste... this is fabulous Mynnette. The inking around the image is superb and the colouring and touch of bling is wonderful!
Thanks so much
