Paper craft project no. 423: Just a note one layer card

My cards for the Coffee Happy special stamp release blog hop are in this post.


We have a brand new challenge at Time Out and for the next couple of weeks, it's Home Sweet Home inspiration photo. 



I decided to go monochromatic black with the newsprint and created a one layer card. I inked up a TH embossing folder then made an impression of it on my base card. Then I stamped the butterflies (from Trendy Butterflies) and the sentiment (from Big Greetings). I also randomly stamped the French script (from Mixed Media Elements) over the embossing folder impression and the card is done. I thought it looked rather like grunge French couture -- how's that for an oxymoron? ;o)

Check out the cards the team + guest designer Cornelia made and then link up your own project inspired by the photo. We can't wait to see them!

I'm linking up my card to Craft Stamper's February Take It Make It Challenge -- Take A Technique: Text Me (my second entry)
 

And it fits the current theme & sketch challenge at STAMPlorations. I went with the theme-- there are 3 small black butterflies -- and sort of did my take on the sketch.


Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to smile :o)

  2. Loving the 'grunge French couture' look .... Clever idea to use the EF as it's given your card the grungy look. Love how you layer your backgrounds, so very effective x
