Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians today.
I cooked a big dinner yesterday so have time to play a bit today.
There was a fun CAS challenge posted this morning at Splitcoast called It's the One; make a one-layer card using only one stamp and one sentiment. Well the challenge was on.
I began by masking the center area of my card using Painter's Tape. I then positioned my stamp inside my MISTI, stamped with black Memento ink and heat embossed with clear powder. I did that so the image would stay crisp when I sponged the next layers.
Next, I moved the stamp over slightly and stamped again using Rusty Hinge Distress ink then Tumbled Glass. It helped to create a reflection look to my image.
I then sponged on some Salty Ocean Distress ink and then using a wet paintbrush, I lifted some of the colour to highlight areas of my scene.
I removed the mask and scored a border around using my ScorPal.
I stamped the sentiment from Serendipity under the scene and heat embossed it with clear powder.
Adding my card to these challenges:
