Concord and 9th - One Layer Challenge


Today I'm joining in with the "Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge", which is the Concord & 9th Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge is to make a (mostly) one layer card.

I discovered Concord & 9th a few months ago through Jennifer McGuire's blog and their stamps and dies are so innovative!  I've had this awesome "Hello Lovely" stamp set (available HERE) for a couple months but haven't shared it here in blog land yet, so today is the perfect opportunity.

I stamped the floral outline image with Versafine Black Onyx ink and then used distress inks with a water brush to watercolor the image.  Then stamped the Hello sentiment and the stamped splatters with the same black onyx ink for a nice crisp image.  I added some white dots to the flower center with my white Signo gel pen.

Then I mounted the panel on to a matching card base for a lovely (mostly) one-layer card!

This stamp set comes with these awesome mid-and half-tone stamps that match the flowers and leaves and they create this faux-watercolor look... very cool.  Haven't tried that, yet, but it's on my list!

Hope you enjoyed today's card - and if you're up for a challenge, why not join in this week's fun, and have a chance at winning a $25 gift card to Concord & 9th!  Click HERE to join in the challenge.
