One Layer - New Beginnings

Less is More has a One Layer challenge this week with the theme 'New Beginnings'. I chose to create a New Baby card for this challenge and pulled out some of my Spellbinders dies, which I find I don't use all that often.


I cut the card base from watercolour paper using the largest die from Decorative Labels 8. I then embossed the front using a Classic Ovals die. I cut the same oval out of acetate and used that as a mask to stamp my image with black StazOn. I used watercolour pencils and a water brush to colour the image and then using the mask again to sponge some soft blue around the outside. Stamped a sentiment and done.

Supplies:
Stamps - Hello Baby (Flourishes)
Dies - Decorative Labels 8, Classic Ovals (Spellbinders)
Ink - Jet Black StazOn, Watercolour pencils, Heavenly Blue ink
Other - waterbrush
