you've been on my mind...

Hey friends!  Popping in with a one layer card for a couple of challenges.  I used to make one layer cards all the time, but lately have found them difficult to make... I think it is the sort of unforgiving nature of a one layer card.  Make a mistake and you have to pretty much start all over!   Anywhoo... this one is for the current AAA Card challenge:  Bare Naked CAS and CASology:  Blossom.  The current Simon Says Stamp flickr challenge is one layer so I have posted this in the SSS flickr group, as well.   ETA:  posting this to the current Paper Players challenge:  Clean and Simple Floral.
 
 


Recently got the Simon Says Stamp February card kit. Love the beautiful stamp set that came in the kit and have used it here.  The color combo is based on the current Splitcoaststampers color challenge:  white, grey and wisteria with a touch of green.   I stamped the flower using SU!'s Wisteria Wonder ink, made a mask and then stamped the leaves using SU!'s Smoky Slate.  The center of the flower was added using Memento Pear Tart.  I added a few more little flowers in the Wisteria Wonder and some dots using Pear Tart.  The sentiment was stamped using VersaFine Onyx Black.  A bit of black Liquid Pearls was also added.

 
Thanks for stopping by... have a great day!
 
Supplies:  Cardstock:  Recollections white; Stamps:  Simon Says Stamp; Inks:  Stampin Up!, VersaFine and Memento; Eclipse masking paper; Liquid Pearls

Beautiful CAS creation! Love the simple layout...and yes, I know what you mean about one-layer being unforgiving....been there, done that!

One layer cards are incredibly tough - the placement, the clean space, the high chance of mess up, the need for perfect alignment... amazing what goes in to get them just right. You've done a cracking job here, gorgeous! Thanks for joining us at AAA Cards Challenge! Jenny x
