I Challenge You Wednesday: One Layer, No Dimension

My friend picked our first Wednesday challenge of the new schoolyear: Make a card with only one layer, no dimension. Boy, was this a hard challenge! I'm a layers girl, especially since I like using my BIC markers, which will bleed through most papers. I'm not sure that these are my favorite cards of all time, but I was pleased enough to post them! :)



Supplies: stamps (Inkadinkado, PSX sentiment; SU! Script background); ink (black, Versamark with chalk); Nestabilities Labels 8.

I used the embossing-only technique with the Nestabilities on this one. I had never had success with it before, but I discovered that (at least for me), it makes a difference which way you put it into the machine. I had always put it facing up because it was easiest to keep in place, but it always cut through my cardstock. When I put it facing down (didn't change the "sandwich" at all), it worked perfectly. Is that strange or what??



Supplies: stamps (Inkadinkado); ink (Versamark with black and Stardust embossing powders).

I love the damask stamp, the sentiment and the sparkle, but this card doesn't really thrill me that much. It needs something else ... which I expect is layers! ;) I'm keeping it "as is," though, because I'm not going to cheat!!

Now you'll want to go check out what my friend made for this week's challenge. Enjoy!
