A One Layer Sketchy ...
Hello my lovely friends and visitors, I hope your week is going well. Today I have a one layer card to share with you and here it is …
An A6 one layer card
I am proud of this one lol!
I adore this flower and the texture from the Glossy Accents is just right!
A final look
Created for me and especially for these Challenges
Addicted to CAS Challenge #84 Delicate:
I didn’t completely ink the stencil because
I wanted an open, clean and distressed OLC.
I love playing with my tools to create one layer distressed cards

When I created the lavender butterfly home décor piece I shared with you some of the Mixed Media Shabby Chic style Bloggers/Artistes that inspired me. Today I wanted to give a shout out to some other Bloggers/Artistes that inspire me and they have also inspired me to try different styles. These ladies create mixed media cards but their style is mixed media minimal layers or only one layer and not much in the way of embellishments either.
I have to hold my hands up and say I have very elective taste lol! The first artiste is Shery. The first time I saw some of Shery’s cards I was blown away. My first thought was wow! And then how the heck does she do that? All those layers of ink on one layer, I was stunned. Next up is the lovely and very talented artiste Becca, the name of her blog alone amused me then when I got to see how Becca distresses, again I was blown away. And finally a lady that made it into my last shout out the lovely Sarn. Sarn has been one of my lovely friends for a little while now and I love her journalling projects! I also love Sarn’s cards too and I think they fall into the less is more category too. I have to hold my hands up and say I have very elective taste lol!
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and comment. I really do appreciate it and I hope you get some time to do what you love to do this soon ttfn Karen x
