Less is More ... One Layer

Good morning!  It is time for a new challenge at Less is More and it is everyone's 'favourite' one layer!

I hope the more we create one layer cards the easier they are!  I have two cards to share one using stamps and the other a stencil.

I stamped the rose and then masked it before stamping the background.  I water coloured the rose with distress inks and stamped the sentiment. I scored the frame around the image to make it pop and to hold it together.

I used:
UNIKO - Pure Florals: Rose
               Simply Said
Indigo Blu - Honeycomb Background
Distress Inks - Twisted Citron, Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin and Peeled Paint.

My second card:

I used inktense pencils and a water brush through the stencil to create the flower - I never have much success with paint or ink blending through a stencil.  The image actually goes around back of the card.

I used:
UNIKO Stencil
Inktense pencils
Versafine Onyx Black Ink

I hope you will be able to find time to join in with the challenge and I look forward to seeing your cards.

Stay Safe and Keep Crafting!


  1. Two great cards Elaine.I love your second one, the colours are just right for the flower.

  2. These are both absolutely wonderful. Your coloring is perfect, and I love the background. The scoring lines are the perfect finish. I LOVE the second. I just got inktense pencils and am going to try this technique. I must say that I am a little afraid of them but, you have inspired me. Gorgeous makes for our BD challenge.
