One Layer Wonder? ...

We've had a change in weather today - the blue sky and sunshine have been replaced with overcast sky and rain, at least Wimbledon is over and not going to be affected by the change.  I spent the weekend with family in Lincolnshire and managed to include a trip to the Summer Crafting exhibition in Doncaster ... I didn't manage to get all the items from my list but I did get some new dies that I didn't even know that I needed!!

On to more important things and the reason for your visit ... my first card of the week.  This was inspired by this week's challenge at "Less is More" - it is One Layer Week with the theme of Masculine.  This is my contribution:-

A quick and simple design - just some masking and stamping. 

I used:
Distress Inks - Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Tumbled Glass, Evergreen Bough.
Clearly Besotted Geometric Style II stamp set
Lawn Fawn Milos ABC stamp set
Die-namics High Rise Alphabet.

I also need to say thank you to the "Less is More" Designers as they decided to ShowCASE one of my cards last week ... I'm honoured to have been chosen when there are so many talented card makers entering the challenge.  Thank you so much ... this is the card:



  1. Hello Elaine....fabulous card, love the design and colours.Great for male of female.I was at Summer crafting on Sat and I found some dies like you that I didn't know I wanted or needed. Got a few £1 bargains too!
