One Layer Time again!

Anne and I had a wonderful time at the Craft Show at the NEC on Thursday. I haven't managed to unpack my goodies as yet as I've been in Bath looking after my grandchildren since then.
Anyway this card for the one layer challenge at Less is More entitled Starry starry night. It has stars from Artemio and splats from Stampin' Up Gorgeous Grunge set. The sentiment is from Clearly Besotted.

My second card has stars from Chloe and a sentiment from Hero Arts, both embossed in silver, with a few gems added for good measure.

Here are a couple made with the free stamp from Simply Cards and Papercraft, it's a great free gift this month!

This last one has a tiny star stamp from Lavinia, stamped many times through a circular mask and clear embossed. The circle cut-out itself was die-cut with the Impression Obsession house die which was then used to mask within the circle so that the sky could be daubed with Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink.  I cut another circle in card to use as a template to draw the bottom line under  the image!  The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Tonight I shall be going to a concert in Chichester Cathedral of Britten's War Requiem, I have sung it a couple of times but never been in an audience, I'm really looking forward to it!

  1. Three fabulous one layer cards Chrissie. Love them all especially the last one. Although on a similar line to mine your depth of colour to the sky is amazing with the stunning little village scene. Have a fun weekend. Sarah xx
