LIM#76 One Layer Challenge: Style Is Eternal

Hello, friends!  Today's card is inspired by the current Less Is More One Layer Challenge to make a card using THREE of anything (e.g., three colors, three images, three stamps, three words, the number three.... it's up to you!). 



[Funny story.  I originally made three cards using a free digi image from Jane's Doodles in which I used three-word sentiments and three different patterned papers to paper-piece three parts of the image.  Then, after getting ready to upload them, I realized that they wouldn't qualify for this challenge because paper-pieced cards are not actually one layer!  OOPS!  So, they will be a post for another day.]

So back to the drawing board...and I must say I am pleased with where this all went.  I started thinking about 3-word sentiments I have in my stash (e.g., "Thinking of You," "Get Well Soon," etc.) and I suddenly remembered an oldie from Hero Arts that states -- three times, no less -- "Style is eternal."  Here is what I ended up with:



I actually did three techniques to this My Mother's Dress stamp, too: I embossed, water colored and glittered (sections).  You can see it better here:


So there you have it.  Three word sentiment, three times, with three techniques on the dress.  AND it's a one-layer card with lots of white space. 

Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Every time I see that stamp, I say to myself..."I MUST order that stamp!"...and I still don't have it! I LOVE how you've colored it...and the sentiment couldn't be more perfect! I think I did the same thing this week when making my cards...the first one ended up with layers before I realized I was suppose to be making a one layer card! LOL!
