The Stamp Man ATC May Swap - Friendship

My one layer ATC

Hi All

Another new month and another new ATC challenge at The Stamp Man and this time the theme is 'friendship'. There seems to be a huge surge in popularity for the one layer and CAS cards at the moment and those of you who know me know that's not my style but I have to try things out and what better way than with an ATC. It's definitely not CAS but apart from the gems there is only one layer.

I masked off the centre piece and used DIs to get the colour. I used DI around the edge of the card to get the contrast. Next I stamped a music text all over, then stamped the sentiment and added flourishes around the edge. I used black pen for the wavy lines and faux stitching.

DIs - bundled sage, barn door, dried marigold
Stampendous music stamp
TH stamps - shabby french
black pen and green pearl gems

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Hi Brenda, your ATC is a beautiful piece of work. I'm not naturally a Clean and Simple sort of cardmaker, but am trying it as a way to stretch the creative cells. Your ATC, I think, is just perfect for the style. Thanks so much for the comment on my blog, it is appreciated. Sarah
