Today, am joining for the first time in this week's One-Layer Wednesday challenge, which i've just very recently discovered. A couple of days ago :)
Before i came up with my entry, i had difficulty stamping a clear image and had to try several times. I've just inked up (finally!) some Pink Paislee stamps i got last year. I tried stamping first on scrap paper bits before i stamped on my card base. Unfortunately, i couldn't get a crisp image. Have used Ranger TH Distress Ink Aged Mahogany, which is the color i initially wanted with this masculine card. I think i need to "prime" myself some more into the stamping groove LOL! I've learned, though, that with doing a one-layer card, i could not easily "hide" my mistakes, as opposed to a multi-layered card where i could patch up what i don't want seen. Unless, i guess, i could color over it (i don't color well). Oh, the (exciting) things i need to learn! Would love to experiment (if i had more time) a lot of techniques.
Long story short, i switched inks for this card to Memento. Here's my newbie attempt:
Have kept to a single-color ink, but maybe next time, i would stamp the sentiment with a different color. Wanted to try several inks on several cardstocks and ended up doing 3 more cards. Pleasant!
Here's the sentiment inside, same ink used as the front:
Supply list: Cardstocks - Bazzill, AC; stamps - Pink Paislee (Daily Junque), Papertrey Ink (Birthday Basics); ink - Memento (Blue Danube, London Fog).
