One Layer Wonders

I know I'm cutting it close but I have yet to miss a Lawnscaping Challenge and I would like to keep it that way.  One Layer cards is the theme for this challenge and I must say I really did find it to be a challenge for me.  But in the end I have two different cards to show for it.



This first one uses Harvest Season and one of the little thank you stamps you get with your Lawn Fawn orders (I just love that about Lawn Fawn!)  I masked off the center and colored the border with scattered straw distress ink then stamped the little leaves with Jenni Bowlin Chicken Feed.  The Cornucopia is colored with colored pencils and the background stamped with Jenni Bowlin Malted Milk.  I wish I had staggered the background text a little more, it lines up too much for me.  But I will just have to remember that for next time.  This next card was actually the design I had in my head for this challenge, but I was waiting on my Quinn's ABC's to come in the mail. Here's a tip, don't design a card when you don't actually own the stamps yet! I have been very very bad about that lately, hehe.


I really love how this one turned out. Although my goal was to try and use only ink, and keep it one layer I want to try the same design again with maybe some coloring or patterned paper.  The thing that is really cool I think on this one is that I used only Lawn Fawn stamps (5 different sets) and only Jenni Bowlin Inks (7 different colors).  How cool is that?  I just big fat puffy {heart} Lawn Fawn & Jenni Bowlin.  Thanks for stopping by today.  I may be back later with another post.  I have been making lots of projects just not giving myself time to blog them lately.
