(...another) Quick Card To Make - One Layer Wednesday

Last Saturday night, I happened to open Donna Mikasa's blog. Her blog is always surprising and full of fabulous creation of hers. I found that she joined One Layer Wednesday by Simplicity. The theme is overlapping. That means, the sentiment is overlapping the image. Then, my mind directly worked on what to do. This afternoon, after teaching my little students, I had a very little short time to make one card...

(..though I ever mentioned that I wouldn't be able to post anything on my blog for a couple of week, still... I COULD....Ohlala..)


Here is my take for One Layer Wednesday card.



It's very quick to make such card. I just colored my stamp from Penny Black with markers from Versamark, sprayed it with my Mini Mister from Hero Arts, and then stamped it on the card. The last thing was to stamp the sentiment from My Sentiment Exactly, overlapped the image. The result somehow looks like a painted image.

Below is another card, using the same stamp. After stamping on the first card, I just sprayed the used stamp and stamped on the second card. The color is brighter. Here is the result.



Which one do you like most?

Some blogs might have ever promoted this technique. However, the person who directly taught me first about this technique was the one from HA store, JDA, S'pore. Thanks to him. This is the technique I like most in stamping.

I do hope I can get that short little time again and again.., between my tight "schedule". That's between teaching my kids for the tests and the preparation for the retreat. (..and actually is also between teaching my students and cleaning my craft room - which is still in a big mess...LOL)

Thanks for looking...

Thanks so much for participating in my challenge this week, especially given your busy schedule! I'm honored, and I hope you'll be back again for it because this card is WONDERFUL, in both its versions! That watercolor effect is simply beautiful (one of my favorite techniques as well!).
