One Layer Birthday Card for The Paper Players

In the mood for a one layer birthday card? I’ve got one! It’s Sunday, and time to play with The Paper Players!

one layer birthday cardThis week, the Queen of Clean, Jaydee, has a One Layer Wonder CAS challenge for us.  You know me…I LOVE layers, but I am always up for a challenge.  I made sure there was only one layer; I left plenty of white space; and it’s pretty simple and uncluttered. I hope you enjoy it!

Watercoloring with Blender Pens and ink is the featured technique on this feminine birthday card.  The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento, and watercolored using Old Olive and Highland Heather inks.  The entire image was then outlined in Balmy Blue to add a wee bit of depth.
