... this week the One Layer Wednesday challenge is being hosted by Jennifer at Styles Ink. Jennifer used to work for a card company - Vigo - and she has suggested that we get some inspiration from here for this week's challenge. I think there are some wonderful images here and I have selected a few that I'm going to try and work with. This is the first:
I love the contrast of the bright pink against the dark green, and the simplicity of the design is just beautiful.
For my card I decided to use a cream card as the background and stamp just a small panel of branches, onto which I placed a small pink bird and a couple of baubles. I created a mask using my rectangular nestie and then stamped the branches into the area, leaving the central area with only a few branches.
Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps - Around Christmastime, Teeny Trees
Inks: Memento - Cottage Ivy, Rose Bud
I might have another go at this tomorrow - in a different colourway (from the suggestions on the website). I also have a few more cards that I particularly like, so I'm going to try and do something with them too.
That's all for this evening. It's been a bitterly cold day here, although I know by some standards we are reasonably warm!! But for early November it's unusual to stay below freezing all day. Hopefully, tomorrow will be a bit warmer. The only plus is that the night sky is just stunning - the stars are so clear. I really will have to get out my binoculars and go out for a look - but not tonight :)
See you all tomorrow.
