Week 167 One Layer

We have another 
challenge for you this week!
The proviso for your cards this week is to have evidence of
Shadow Stamping.

There are several ways of doing this, using emboss resist, re-stamping without re-inking or simply stamping the same image in a lighter shade.

Let's see what you can come up with!


For this card, I masked a vertical section using Post it notes and then inked the background with sponge daubers, using Antique Linen and Old Paper Distress inks.
Each Inkadinkado image was stamped in SU Early Espresso ink and then stamped a second time without re-inking the stamp. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.
I made two cards for this week's challenge before I remembered that it is One Layer Week! I'm sure they'll come in handy for something!

 First card uses Card-Io tapestry stamps to make a floral wreath, the twigs, flowers and leaves are all stamped several times without re-inking.  Some of the flower centres have Stickles added.  I haven't added a sentiment to this card, though it's meant to be an Easter wreath, I felt it was looking quite busy enough.


I've kept my card simple for this week and used clear stamps from Clearly Besotted's April release for my card.  This set is Pretty Petals Plus and I first stamped in Hero Arts Unicorn ink and then used different colours of Hero Arts shadow inks to add some colour.  The Sentiment is from Waltzing Mouse.
I'm off work this week so finally will have time to catch up on live after a hectic few months.
