I don't think I've shared this one yet–one of the store samples I designed. If I have already, my apologies for the repeat. I'm beginning to lose hope that I'll have any serious creative time in the studio until mebbe August. No lie!
Anyway, I just love an OLC (one layer card) because it's all about working with just the basics and making them shine. I do try to push myself to go beyond these, altho I must admit they are always my favorite to make.
The Leaf Frond II was stamped with dye ink first, and pouncing the paper surface afterwards with an anti-static pouch to make sure there was no residual moisture or stray oil from my finger tips on the surface that might attract embossing powder in unwanted areas. Then the Queen Anne's Lace was stamped with Versamark and white embossed. A simple sentiment, a little bit of ivory twine, and some corner rounding was all it took to finish it off.
The Latté paper makes a fabulous foundation for this kind of "natural" look and is a lovely lighter alternative to using kraft paper.
Hope your day is beautimous indeed! Hmmm, I know–not a word. But, it should be. The definition would be something like, "adj. 1. a combination of beautiful and ginormous, as in 'ginormously beautiful' 2. beautiful magnified to the Nth degree." Yeah. It otta' be a word, doncha' think?
