New Less is More Challenge: #479: ONe Layer- Anything Goes


There's a new challenge over at the Less is More Blog!: 
One Layer and anything goes.

I've chosen to do a Happy Birthday Card, as I always need those, although at firts I wanted Easter with a silhouette stamp.

But instead I Made a mask with a Joy Crafts die (really old, but any would work) and adhered it on the cardbase, then masked the bottom, once I new how much space I needed. 

I used Distress inks to make my scene: Wilted Violet, Candied Apple, Carved Pumpkin and mUsteard Seed for my SunSet and Mermaid Lagoon for the Sea.

Peeled off the maskes and now have a crisp white Sailboat.I kinda like it, but might add shading if I feel it needs it.

Sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps (Simple Sentiment Strips) and I stamped it in Versafine Black ink.
