LOC Dotted Flight

I have something a little different today - I like to challenge myself to trying different styles and this one was a one layer card - not at all my style of preference! LOL!

I cut an oval using my Spellbinders Classic Ovals LG and used it as a mask - I love how versitile the Nestibilities are.  The Classic Ovals LG has been cut using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur

stamping the script stamp from the Layers of Color The Love Chapter clear art stamp set across the entire card base, using the Dotted Delight clear art stamp set I stamped the bird in Tuskineko StazOn in Timber Brown

Each corner has been stamped with the Layers of Color Merci Bouquet clear art stamp set and coloured using Stampin Up Chalks/Pastels and a Blender Pen - shading has also been added around the edges of the oval.

The flower is from the Flowering Gems clear art stamp set and has been popped up on a foam dot (I could not help myself! LOL)

This card is for the following challenges:

  12. Except for the minor set back of one layered flower, which I personally think is a perfect idea, your card looks marvelous! The color choices and movement of design doesn't make it appear to be one layered at all. It looks fantastic Linda!!
