Paper craft project no. 443: For you one layer card

We have a brand new challenge at Time Out. For the next couple of weeks, it's the Home Sweet Home challenge. Here's the inspiration photo, and a lovely one at that!

I took my cue from the brick wall and created a one layer CAS card. Just like my previous TO card, I stuck with a limited palette: black, yellow, and brick red. First, I stamped the daffodils (Framed Daffodils) in black VersaFine ink. Then I masked it before randomly stamping the bricks (Mixed Media Grunge) in black soot Distress ink. I pulled the black with a wet brush. I colored the center of the flowers with a splatter stamp (Art Marks) and then finished it off by stamping the simple sentiment (Gone Postal) in brick red.

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

Linking up to these fun challenges:
