Week 241 One Layer

Who would believe it? 
It's One Layer time
This title this time is 
You don't necessarily have to have that word on your card, but the sentiment or design should reflect the theme!
Greetings cards are all about sending good wishes to someone, so it shouldn't cause too many problems... the one layer element is another matter of course!

DO remember that white space and try not to add too many embellishments!
Here are our cards


I stamped and masked the images from Clearly Besotted's Love Quotes II stamp set using Archival ink in Jet Black.  I then coloured the images with some Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and water.  The sentiment is from the same set and I finished off with a sprinkling of Doodlebug sequins.

My kraft card has embossing paste stars stencilled on from a Memory Box stencil, a Unity sentiment and a Clarity couple stamped and heat embossed.  Hillside added with a Pigma pen.

This is the simplest of cards. A computer generated sentiment and Winter Pines stamp by Deep Red. There are some twinkles on the trees, for which I dabbed a little Stickles here and there, but sadly this doesn't really show up on the photograph. This may well be one of those stand-by type designs which I'll be able to produce quickly should I be short of a few cards at the last minute.
The fonts are VNI-HL Thuphap and Lydian BT.

I decided to try out a rustic-type scene with cups and mugs using the 'Warm Wishes'.
set from Clearly Besotted and sentiment from their In The Frame set.
The sentiments, including the hand-drawn line in versamark are heat embossed
in WOW Pale Gold Metallic EP, whilst the mug and cups are embossed 
using Hero Arts white EP before water-colouring with distress inks.
To finish ... some extra dots to the cups using a gel pen for more detail!
