Paper craft project no. 343: May love always surround you watercolor one layer card

We have a brand new challenge at Time Out Challenges. For the next couple of weeks, it's CASE with your own twist. We're CASEing a card by one of my favorite cardmakers, the awesome Kim Makortoff of Art Keeps Me Sane. Joining the TO girls is guest designer Claire of Life on the Scrap Heap. Come play with us and be in the running to win a prize from our sponsor, Clearly Besotted.

Here's Kim's card:

I took my cue from the flowers, colors, and layout in Kim's card. My twist: I made mine a one layer card -- what else? ;o) I flipped the layout of the card and stamped the daisies in antique linen DI, masking as I went along. I watercolored the blooms and background with Koi watercolors. I grunged it up a little with some mixed media grunge stamps stamped in Memento Luxe navy. I finished the card by stamping the sentiment in Memento black ink.

Linking up my card to these fun challenges:

Thanks for stopping by! Smile :o) -- I did since I felt my baby kick a few times while writing this post. The little one sure is active, making his/her (we'll know the gender in 3 weeks) presence felt more and more as the days go by.



  1. you really are the Queen of one layer! What amamzing masking and love how you grunged this up-must get my mixed media set out, had forgotten about them!

  2. What a fabulous riot of spring colour, Shery ... the dimension from the layered stamping is brilliant! Anita :)

  3. Gorgeous one layer, Shery! I love the grunginess of it. Thank you for your kind words too. That's so exciting, feeling the baby move,isn't it? Just wait until it's bigger and stretches and does somersaults! Hugs! :-)
