An Open Heart- One Layer for PP200

Hi Stampers!

I am having so much fun with my new stamps that I wanted to share a few more of my creations.   This card was created using the new set, An Open Heart (love the images especially the Carolina Wren) and I decided to create a one layer card for The Paper Players PP200 Challenge (chose one of the challenges that the Design Team chose from the last 200- this card is for Ann's choice PP142).  

The main design is all on one layer of Very Vanilla but I did add a frame of Basic Black and Baked Brown Sugar to finish off the card- not sure if this still qualifies as one layer but thought I would submit since this challenge was the inspiration :-)
I have one more card for the PP200 Challenge to share in a separate post and I hope you will take the time (if you have not done so already) to visit The Paper Players and check out all of the other Design Team entries as well as the gallery- wonderful inspiration from all!!

To create this card:

Ink the bird stamp from An Open Heart using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.

 Re-ink the bird image and stamp onto a sticky note or scrap piece of paper to use as a mask.  Carefully “fussy-cut” around the image for the mask and place it over the stamped bird image on the cardstock.

Create another mask for the ground layer and place onto the card.  Using a Sponge Dauber, apply a bit of Crumb Cake Classic Ink onto the upper part around the bird image and Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink for the ground area.

Keep the masks in place and ink the leaf spray stamp using Crumb Cake Classic ink and repeatedly stamp onto the card over the bird, re-ink the same stamp using Baked Brown Sugar and stamp a few times as well.

Remove the masks and color the bird using Stampin’ Write markers- Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand, So Saffron and Baked Brown Sugar.  Use the Chalk Marker to add a few white highlights to the wings and use the Basic Black Stampin’ Write marker to add a line around the ground area.

Ink the splatter image from Gorgeous Grunge using Crumb Cake Classic Ink to add a bit of distressing over the card and lightly sponge with additional Crumb Cake Classic Ink over the edges.

Ink the sentiment stamp from Trust God using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto the card front. 

Trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim again and mount onto the Baked Brown Sugar card base to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: An Open Heart, World of Dreams, Gorgeous Grunge, Trust God

Ink:  Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, Crumb Cake, Baked Brown Sugar; Stampin’ Write Markers- Sahara Sand, Baked Brown Sugar, Crumb Cake, So Saffron, Basic Black; Chalk Marker

Paper: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Baked Brown Sugar

Accessories: Sponge Dauber, sticky note for mask

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- I will share another card for a different one of The Paper Players PP200 Challenges shortly :-)

I had to read the dialogue to believe the wren wasn't popped up on dimensionals! A gorgeous card - I've got that stamp set on my wish list because of the wren. Love what you've done with it.

Julie, your card is sweet and calming. I love your masking with watercoloring -not an easy thing to do sometimes! I love watercoloring and will have to be inspired by your creation and attempt a masking/watercolor card.
