This week's One-Layer Wenesday challenge is to make a card that layers ink, using only stamped images and sentiments. No masking or sponging is allowed! When I think of layers of ink, I think sponging and masking. So this certainly was a challenge for me, I just couldn't seem to get anything to work. Composition not right. Colours not working. Sentiment crooked. Ahhhhhh!
So... after many attempts, I finally came up with something I was "kind of" happy with ;)
Stamps: Love & Care
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Rose Red, Regal Rose
And here is one of the "attempts" which includes Pretty in Pink and Pink Pirouette inks. I like the idea of the images stretching from edge to edge, but this just looked too messy for my liking. I much prefer the "cleanness" of the other card. Also, the sentiment is a bit lost in the flower, and I was hoping to achieve a more even gradation between the colours. Perhaps if the sentiment was positioned differently (maybe over the to the right somewhere) it might have been okay.
So what will happen to this card? It will get added to the pile of "experiments" that one day might get made into something else. And yes that does happen — you may just see a part of it somewhere else!
