In My Thoughts in One Layer

Today I have a one layer card again.  This is based on the Paper Players Challenge #159 - make a one layer card.  I also used the colors from the Fab Friday Challenge #24 and the Friday Mashup Challenge #123 (use clear blocks and/or color blocking).

The finished card is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" and the base is Whisper White card stock.  I first inked up the Clear Mount Block E with Crumb Cake ink.  After stamping it off on scrap paper, I ran just the edges along the ink pad and stamped on the card at an angle.  Next I stamped the swirl from the Creative Elements stamp set over this stamping using Crumb Cake ink.  I colored in parts of the swirl with Crisp
Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding, So Saffron  and Crumb Cake markers.  The Clear Mount Block D was inked up with So Saffron ink and stamped to the lower right of the first block.  The flower from the same stamp set was stamped using Crisp Cantaloupe ink.  The last block used was Block
G and that was inked with So Saffron ink and stamped in the lower left.  I then stamped the sentiment from A Dozen Thoughts stamp set over it using Crisp Cantaloup ink.  As they say, that is all she wrote (or, in this case, stamped).  Like I said before, creating a one-layer card is so different since no embellishments are added.  I figured out if I decide what stamp set(s) I want to use, I can figure out a layout/design better.  Thank you for dropping in.  I hope you get a chance to explore your creativity this week.

So pretty, Patti! I love how you inked up the clear blocks to "frame" the images. So much fabulous detail on this one layer wonder. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
