One Layer Card

Hope you're having a good weekend. The weather here is wet so that meant a crafty afternoon and I decided to have a play at something different to try and kick start my inspiration.

I thought I would try my hand at a one layer card using one of my new stamps - Kaisercraft 'Botanical - which I stamped with black Memento ink and lightly coloured the flowers and butterflies with chalks. The sentiment stamp was one I've had for ages and may have been with a magazine but I'm not sure. It's such a temptation to add a piece of ribbon or twine and a few pearls or layer the image on card to give it a frame, but I am determined that this will remain a 'CAS one layer' card even if it does look a little 'naked'.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

CAS on Sunday challenge 'One layer wonder'
That's Crafty challenge 'Inky antics'
Vintage Stamping challenge 'Just for you' (my 2nd entry playing around just for me)

Thanks for popping over and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend.
