Week 228 - One Layer Card

Morning Limettes
This week we are back with another 

One Layer Card week
and the theme is 

You certainly rocked last week's sunset challenge with your
fabulousness and inspirational use of those colours.

Let's see what you make of this one and where your inspiration takes you. 
You don't have to use an actual house/home image; maybe what 'home' means to you.

Please keep your design to ONE layer with lots of yummy 'white space'
We have had quite a few submissions of late considerably lacking in WHITE SPACE
so do try to leave some of your designs with areas containing no image or decoration! 

and here's our examples. 


I rarely use digi stamps these days but the sunny weather 
here in the UK was calling me outside and my mojo 
was on the sun lounger and not my craftroom!
 The digi image is from Pollycraft and my sentiment is from 
the super talented Hannelie - Desert Diva who kindly allowed me 
to use her perfect image ... from her card last week HERE 


Lots of masking was involved with this card.  
I started by stamping the curtains then masked these off before 
stamping the window frame in VersaMark ink 
and embossing with clear embossing powder.  
The mask was put back in place so I could blend the sky through 
the window with Distress Ink in Salty Ocean. 
I then stamped the vase and flowers and the sentiment below.  
The sentiment is from the 'Home Sweet Home' stamp set by Woodware 
and all the other images are from Clearly Besotted's 'Window Dressing' set.  


This card is mostly Stampin' Up - balloons are From the Herd and 
the houses from Holiday Home.  The sentiment is Little Claire 
and I coloured with Copics, the light colours haven't bled through, 
so this can stay a one layer card!

This is from an old Stampin' Up wheel stamp, but I love the images. 
It's gently coloured with watercolour pencils and blended 
with a waterbrush. The sentiment is from Little Claire.

If you head over to our personal blogs there's likely to be more ideas 
and please remember to leave some lovely comments along the way
and for your fellow limettes ... we all love a comment!
