Today's one layer card was inspired by the sketch at Stick It Down and will also be entered @ Cards and More for "One Layer Cards", @ Watercooler Wednesday for "Masculine -Anything Goes" and @ Simon Says Stamp for "Add a Sentiment".
You may recognize this Fun Stamper's Journey stamp set from the "Lime Your's" card I showcased in this post here, back in June...it sure is a fun one and I love how there are so many cute sayings to go along with the stamp images! The scribble stamp set is recently retired from Close To My Heart.
This card is A2 sized and made exclusively from ultrasmooth white cardstock. The green ink is a chalk ink pad from TAC and I heat embossed the sentiment in silver powder.
After stamping the kiwi 3 times in black Memento ink I colored them using just 2 shades of Citrus Green Spectrum Noir markers, highlighted them with clear Wink of Stella and fussy cut them out.
I splattered the front using FSJ Silver Silk and popped the kiwis up with mini foam dots for some dimension.
The final touch was using a punch to round the corners on the right side of the card and adhering the clear and green sequins to add to the simple whimsy-like feeling of the card.
Inside I used an old sentiment that I am not sure even of it's origin and an antique key stamp that was from The Angel Company. I stamped the key in grey ink, traced the outside of it with a silver gel pen and colored over the entire image with silver Wink of Stella...I just love the shimmery definition it added. I am a long time collector of antique keys and love them- in all shapes and sizes!
This card was meant to go in my hubby's overnight bag for his business trip this week and then Lyme brain-fog took over and I totally forgot...oh well, there's always next week, lol. Until next time~
