Thoughts Of You


This is a one layer card made for this week's One Layer Wednesday OLW81 challenge hosted by Jennifer Styles at Styles Ink.   The requirements of the challenge this week are to use a cream base, black ink and just a hint of bling.  This gorgeous Winter Sky image from Penny Black immediately came to mind. 

My base is Taylored Expressions Choice Buttercream cardstock. I masked a sqare in the center and stamped the image with VersaFine Black Onyx ink.  I embossed a square around the image with a Nestabilities square die.  The bling is very hard to see in this photo, but the branches are dotted with Stardust Stickles which adds some lovely sparkle.  I struggled with the sentiment, but finally settled on this one from MFT Essential Sentiments.  Thanks for stopping in today.  Have a wonderful day.

I love that stamp and I'm having a lot of fun with it. It looks beautiful in classic black and white with the scored border. I'll have to try it without colour.
