This week at One Layer Wednesday, it's Heather's first time as hostess and for her first challenge she has chosen 'Keep it Small', the focus of the card must be no larger than 2"x2"... a mini masterpiece!
For this card I masked a small 2"x2" square with Post it notes and began by stamping the teasels from the Rubber Stamp Gallery with Versamark and clear embossing them.
I then inked the square starting at the top right hand corner with SU Sahara Sand ink, applied with an ink dauber. I then moved in a south westerly direction adding some Crumb Cake ink and finally some Adirondak Cranberry.
I then positioned the SU Joie stamp with my lego positioner and stamped it in Soft Suede ink. Finally came the addition of some text from the SU French Foliage set and the stamping of some of the teasels in Cranberry.
After the embossed teasels were cleaned of any surface ink the masks were removed and hey presto... all done.
For this shape of image I wouldn't normally round the corners of the card...but one was slightly dinged.. so I kinda had to!
Off to lunch today with some old friends of my husband. The chap lived in the same road as he did when he was growing up... so they go back a long way. His wife sadly has Parkinson's Disease and is confined to a wheelchair, but normally manages to enjoy a lunch out!
It will be great to see them again. I don't think they'll recognise Phil as they haven't seen him since he lost 5 stones 12 pounds... I'm up to the 46 pound loss at the moment. 11 lbs to go!
