The current challenge at One Layer Simplicity is to make a one-layer card using a weather theme. I attempted to make it last weekend, but the set I wanted to use was at home. I managed to find a set that was similar that I could borrow.
Here's my initial card (major #FAIL):
Ignore the layering. Do you see my #FAIL? I die-cut the girl and umbrella. I am such an idiot sometimes. By the time I realized the error of my ways, I'd already colored the die-cut images, so I just kept plugging away and ended up with this card.
You can't tell because of my crack photography skills, but I put Glossy Accents on her boots to make them shiny.
Today I tried again. Now that I'm home, I used the set I'd originally planned to use, and I made this:
I don't have a tiny raindrop stamp, so I used a heart stencil and colored the hearts with Soft Sky ink and a dauber. The critter and umbrella were colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol.
The sentiment is from an MFT Get Well set. I like the first sentiment better, as it refers to rain (weather), but I think this one works. I don't think I've ever used the MFT set before, and I hacked the sentiment in half so it fit under the umbrella.
I tried to ground the critter, but I think he still looks like he's floating. Oh, well.
I still can't believe I've pulled this off.
Thanks for stopping by!
Some of the stuff I used: Mama Elephant Chance of Rain (first card), Mama Elephant Up & Away (second card), MFT Get Well Wishes, Hero Arts Soft Sky ink, SSS Falling Hearts stencil, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol.
