One Layer Wonders - Day 2 and Day 3

I'm taking the the One Layer Wonders class at Altenew Academy.    Day 2 was about masking and using a background stamp.

I don't have any Altenew Backgrounds so I used a Hero Arts one with some Altenew Inks

I did some rainbow stamping with some random colouring.  I stamped the sentiment with Altenew alpha stamps.  They have different inners for each letter.  I used  the rainbow colours to stamp the stripes.  The friend word is stamped directly onto a single layer by colouring the space where it goes with black pen, then white embossing.  Some drop shadows give the impression of layers.  The sequins are stamps by Winnie & Walter stamped with the Altenew inks.   Learnt lots of interesting techniques in the class.

I'm entering this one into the Bright & Cheerful challenge at Simon Says Stamp 

Day 3 was about Watercolour under painting.   Kelly used a bouquet of flowers for her focal point.  I chose to use a spray of flowers

I used Oxide inks to colour my flowers and the background.  The flowers are from The Best Mom set.  I used some Prismacolor pencils to enhance the flowers and added white gel pen dots and highlights.  Added a grey shadow to give the impression that the flowers are raised off the card.

Hubby was away today so I spend a goodly amount of time in my craft room.  I finished off my Fairy for the May class at Kit and Clowder and made a card using a cut file I purchased last week.  I'll share tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wow - great use of the shadowing to make these cards look multi-layered when in reality they are just a single layer. Great work Dawn
