Lawnscaping Challenge #114: One Layer

It's that time again - challenge time! So, this challenge from Lawnscaping Challenges is a great one. Most of us create dimensional cards, with many layers and elements. Not today!! Think CAS! I knew exactly what I wanted to do and the new set I wanted to use for this card...come check it out.

We are sponsored by the always amazing Lawn Fawn! Those folks just rock and they are sponsoring this challenge with a free stamp set of the winner's choice! So many stamp to choose from, I know. It's tough. We just heart them! Thank you Kelly Marie and gang for sponsoring us! YOU ROCK!

Here is my project for this one layer challenge:

I LOVE this set, can I just say that?? It's seriously adorable. All the little sheep and fun elements are too much. It's the Lawn Fawn Baaah Humbug set. My hubby and I give each other a card in our stockings on Christmas morning, so that was my inspiration. I wanted a CAS card since, let's face it, he's a guy and isn't about all the frills and fancy stuff. He likes simple, straight to the point. This fills the bill!

I took a piece of watercolor cardstock and made that my card base. Since this is a single layer card, I knew I wanted to use my Spectrum Aqua Markers for this card anyway, and I generally will stamp that, cut out and adhere to another piece of cardstock, but I just removed that step and stamped right onto my card base! I created my little scene here with the sheep and placed mistletoe and the ribbon between then. I stamped the sheep with Versafine in Onyx Black and colored in with my Spectrum Aqua Markers. 

For the mistletoe, I used Staz-On Midi in Cactus Green and the bow for the mistletoe is Memento Luxe in Love Letter. The sentiment is also in Versafine, Onyx Black. I simply curved it to my liking on my clear block and stamped that my card right above the mistletoe. 

It needed a little something, so I used some painters tape (some people use washi tape as well) to mask off a stripe and I colored it in with a Bronze Metallic Sharpie. 

There you have it. A totally cute, one layer card. 

Have fun with this challenge and be sure to check out the rules to enter your card into this challenge over on the Lawnscaping Blog!

I love the added stripes on the top and bottom edges. I don't usually do OLC, but this looks like 2 layers - will have to adde stripes. Thanks for the inspiration.
