Week 119 One Layer

This week it's everyone's favourite.. One Layer Cards and this week we would like you to use a
Coloured Card Blank
Yes that's right, none of your boring, white, ivory, black or kraft card blanks we want to see you add some colour.  Here are our cards for this week...


This is a watercolour stamp, which was first stamped using white craft ink and then the image coloured with watercolour pencils in a variety of shades on a dark blue base. The shades were blended using a water brush. I really love the effect.

This is another stamp from our sponsor this month Acid Drops and Whatnots. Having had  longstanding problems with my back, I can empathise with the sentiment on this one.
If you haven't yet checked out the wonderfully whimsical images available, do hop over there to have a look.



For my first card I am using the Need For Speed set from Stampin Up.  I simply stamped it using my stamp-a-majig and the coloured it with a couple of red flexmarkers. The Sentiment is also from a set from Stampin Up.


My second card uses the fabulous new set from Clearly Besotted, Honeycomb.  They are stamped onto a pale blue pearl card base .  The sentiment is from the same set.  
I kept both cards really simple to ensure the colour was the main element.

We can't wait to see what you come up with!
Let's have a colouful week!

  7. Hi Guys - I accidentally chose the wrong image when I posted my entry - there is a card on coloured card base there so it should be OK - just the thumbnail on your page is the other card. Thanks for the chance to publish my cards - cheers Mxx

  9. I am so sorry! I even read the rules, but I missed that black wasn't an acceptable color... I figured it was, since black isn't usually acceptable. Many apologies. Please delete my entry (#76). I love your challenges, but I mess up every single time LOL! Thanks for the inspiation. Best, CG
