Happy Wednesday, one of the best days of the week for me - the workday week is halfway through AND it's time for a new One Layer Wednesday challenge. I saw this challenge when it went up last night, so I had time to mull it over while I slept. The challenge is to use white, grey with a pop of colour and this time I followed the rules to the letter.
Whilst I woke up with the concept, it took several tries to get this one right - I find a sheet of scratch paper folded into four is perfect for getting the layout and colour balance of a card like this right - one layer cards do not come easy to me.
I started by stamping the martini glass in slate, first on the card and then on the sticky part of a post-it. I cut out the mask - just the triangle at the top, placed it over the glass and then stamped the background over - to get the depth of colour just right I inked it up with slate, stamped on scratch paper and then over the glass - paler than the glass, but dark enough to create an impact.
Next, and it's not really visible in the photo - to be honest it is incredibly subtle in reality - I used pebble for the liquid in the glass - the set comes with a small triangle that just fills the glass.
And now for the pop of colour - I (carefully) inked the cherry in cherry (what else!) and its stem in slate. A sentiment and the card is complete. The perfect card for a friend of mine - just have to wait until she invites me to another of her fantastic parties!
That's it for today - as I said yesterday, my copy of the new Amuse Studio catalog is scheduled to arrive today, so I've got to clean, wash, and cook like crazy this morning so that I can sit down and drool when it arrives - I've seen excerpts but I've only heard about the whole thing. Do contact me if you would like your very own copy and I will send you one for $5 plus $5 shipping.
