Hi. I am popping in really quickly to share a card for this month's One-Layer Simplicity Challenge to Wave the Flag. I was inspired to make this card by a tee shirt I saw someone wearing that used canoe paddles for the stripes on a flag. I was too embarrassed (or sensible) to ask the person if I could take a picture of her shirt for my card-making files.
To make this card, I cut a rectangle out of a post it, adhered it to the card, and then stamped the canoe paddles in a line. Then, I put the negative part of the post it on the card, removed the rectangle and stamped stars, embossed them with clear, and then sponged Chipped Sapphire Distress Ink over the stars.
This card will be going to Operation Write home, and I will probably cut out the focal point and mat it, as there is an unfortunate smudge of ink that I am not happy about, but for now, it is still one layer.
I apologize for my lack of blog visiting and commenting, and hope to get back in the swing of things soon.
Thanks for Visiting
