Today, I'm switching from Stretching Your Stamps to One Layer Cards. I will try to have my weekly Sunday posts here for a few weeks to give you ideas on One Layer Cards using Create A Smile products!
The idea is to inspire you to create one layer card with the look of dimension :)
Starting of with stamping my sentiment on my watercolour card base first.
I've masked it with a post-it paper because I would like to keep the area clean.
I took the pretty coffee cup and used various distress ink colours (in rainbow form) to stamp my image. I have a spare paper next to my card to do my first stamping and then stamp it on my card, I wanted the line to not be so vibrant. After that, I just watercoloured the cups with the same colour for individual stamps :D
I find that creating shades in your images makes your one layer cards look more dimensional and not as flat as it sounds :) Play with your colours and create shadows and intense the dark areas to create this dimensional look.
