One-Layer Card

Welcome to the last day of the Impression Obsession sneak peek week. I hope you have enjoyed it and been inspired.

Today I wanted to share a one-layer card with you using one of the new background stamps (CR006 Honeycomb). I know I will be using this stamp a lot! I stamped the background onto a kraft notecard using Toffee Versafine ink. I then stamped the Dogwood 3 (H12004) and Hello greeting (A3759) on top using black Memories ink and colored the flowers with white and pink Prismacolor pencils. Because the pencils are opaque, the coloring covered up the brown honeycomb underneath the flowers.

Be sure to check out the other designers on this final day, and don't forget to leave comments for a chance to win a prize. Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Jenny, Julie, and Vicki all have something to share.

Your coloring of the Dogwood flower is simply amazing and I had no idea pencils could cover so well the stamping underneath. Love one layer cards both from a design and a practical standpoint (posting).

I've been learning allot with these blogs - I did not know opaque pencils would cover so well. I also like one-layer cards because they fit in an envelope and mail well - that often means allot!
