3 cards...but I have only 1 I'm happy with...

...you can decide which one is your favorite.  I've made 3 cards for this week's One Layer Wednesday with the theme of gratitude with the same stamps in different colors.  I decided to get all technical and do some masking! ;)

Card one~

For these fabulous challenges~



So, this one is okay.  I don't know how I feel about it.  It's not my favorite of the three...that one will be the last.  I DO like the layout of this card and will try to make more like this soon!

Card two~

For these fabulous challenges~



Okay, so this one I like a bit better, but I don't like how my attempt at shading of the sentiment panel portion.  UGH.  Will I ever get this idea right?!  Oh, yes I think I did!!!

Card three (my favorite!)~

Details~



For these fabulous challenges~



Yes.  This is kind of what I was looking for!  I think that I needed more colors to play with and so it's exactly what I pictured! :)  Which is your favorite?

Thanks for enduring this post and for commenting!  I appreciate all of you being here!  I hope you come and join in these super fabulous challenges--happy stamping! :)

What lovely cards, Mynette, I love the stamp that looks like a framed mirror in the background! I love using it as well. Your flowers are so pretty! So happy you joined us this week at the colourQ and shared your cards.

I think they're all lovely, wonderful OLW cards. The last one definitely feels more like autumn, though, so maybe that's why it's your favourite.

Hi Mynnette - you've been really busy with your cards - I think they are all lovely. I really like the stamps, and I might be a bit biased, but I really like the first card :) Thanks so much for joining in with CR84FN this week!

Lovely cards, Mynnette. I think the last card is my favorite, although I always love a pink and green combination, too. That sentiment is beautiful. Ann Y.

I think these are all lovely! You did a great job with the masking. Thanks for joining us for this week's Color Throwdown.

Susan Raihala said...

I agree with Ardyth, perhaps you like the last one best because it's more autumnal. Whatever the reason, all three are lovely, and your masking and the layouts are fabulous!
