One Layer

Time for a new code word from Addicted To Clean and Simple.
  Barb is our hostess and she chose the code word ONE LAYER
Here's my one layer card:
I used the Dandelion Wishes stamp set from Happy Little Stampers.
  Join in this challenge with us and you have a chance
to win a  $20. gift card to the store!

Here's how I made this one layer:
Step one 
Tape the edges to create a border 

Step 2
Sponge distress inks. 
I used scattered Straw, Dried marigold and peeled paint.

 Step 3
To do the Bokeh technique I made my own stencils
out of plastic and circle dies of different sizes.
I used Hero Arts Unicorn pigment ink to sponge 
inside the circle stencils.

Step 4
Remove the tape and stamp your image in black,
add a sentiment ( also in black)
 and mount the finished panel(5 1/2 by 4 1/4 )
onto a card front. 

Here's what I learned from making this card,
it would be better to let the white pigment ink 
dry completely before you stamp over it.
Take another look at my card and see how crisp
 and bright the sentiment looks as compared to the dandelions.
Live and learn! 

'till next time,


  1. Awesome one layer card, Doni! Beautiful ink blending on the background and I love how you created the bokeh effect...very cool!

  2. GREAT job Doni! Love how your dandelions fit right in the circles! Again ... great job on this technique!

  3. The bokeh technique looks wonderful, Doni, leaving a halo around the seed heads.

  4. This is absolutely fantastic, Doni. This technique was a perfect choice to use with this wonderful dandelion image.

  5. Doni, I love the bokkeh effect and how wonderfully these dandelions fit into it. Gorgeous card
