Hello Ai Fans !!!
Today’s card was an awesome challenge , how can I make an amazing card with only one layer ? I guess you start with amazing stamps , Ai has that covered ,so I will show that you can create depth and dimension with shading and colors and layering stamps.
I started with SU going grey card stock I stamped Spud (sku # 1557 ) mid center of my card
I then took copic marker W1 and went around the entire stamped image , this makes your stamp pop off the page ( I do this every time I stamp , I love the way it looks ) I learned this a CK convention last year and have been in love with this technique ever since .
then I stamped another image and cut it out for a masknext you use Elmer’s repositionable glue stick to lay a thin tack layer on the back , I then placed it over my image
I then took a back ground stamp I had of news print and stamped it over the entire card
take the mask off and see what you have
I think it looks great and I have not even added color yet , I then took my copic markers and colored my focal image in , the white is a Tim Holtz picket fence marker ( love- love -love this marker ) another CK convention find , its hard to tell by the picture but I used Gelly roll clear star glitter pen on a couple of place on this card , it adds bling without saying girlie card : ) I sponged Stampin Up soft suede to antique up the edges.
I hope you will give this a try and I am sure you will love it as much as I do. Don’t you think this card turned out great and not a single ribbon ,brad or anything… crazy how a single layer can look like it pops off the page…
