me & you....

Hello friends!!   Here with a card for the current Less is More challenge.   This week is the dreaded one layer challenge.   Thank goodness this time I double checked what the challenge was before starting my card.  Last month I made a card the one layer challenge then realized that my card wasn't one layer as required!!  As well as having the requirement that the card be one layer it needs to have a musical element on it.


I don't often use masking on my cards, not sure why... I just don't.   It is a rather simple technique that can result in some really stunning effects.  I decided to do some simple masking by cutting a piece of Eclipse tape to fit my card front and then die cutting a heart in the center.  Once I did that I placed the mask on the card front and stamped the front with the Hero Arts Musical Background cling stamp using grey ink.  After I removed the mask I stamped the "me & you" from the HA clear set "You & Me" using red and black inks.  Three little clear rhinestones finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by....  On the Less is More front we got some sad new... Mandi, who founded LIM with Chrissie, has had to stepped down from her LIM post.   Several months ago she purchased a wedding planning business and must devote all her time to growing that business.  She will be sorely missed by everyone!!   But there is some good news as the fabulously talented Jen will be continuing on as a designer for LIM!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Rustic White; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  Memento Tuxedo Black, London Fog & Ladybug; Rhinestones:  Stampin Up!

This is stunning Rosemary. I had two attempts at masking and stamping and it should have turned out just like yours but I failed miserably.
