One Layer Wednesday #6--Overlapping



I love Wednesdays.  Time to visit Simplicity and see what Susan has in store. This week's OLW is overlapping.  Create a one layer card and overlap the image and sentiment.

I had a lot of ideas and decided to use Hero Arts' Traditional Butterfly. Thankfully, the sentiment is a clear stamp, because I knew that I wanted to curve the sentiment to mimic the butterfly's movement.

I had two more cards but felt they weren't "publish worthy". This one was my fave and I'm sure I'll use this design again, if ever I need a quick all occasion card.

Visit Susan's blog and give her one layer challenges a try. Next to a glass of wine, it's a great way to decompress after a week of coloring, layering, trimming, embellishing....

Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black,  Memento Cantaloupe
Cardstock: Georgia Pacific
Other:  corner rounder

  3. I agree about the curved sentiment being perfect for the butterfly. I could see making the butterfly in different colors and using as a gift set. I love your card!
