One Layer Wednesday 112 – Song in my Heart

I discovered Ardyth’s One Layer Wednesday yesterday and as OLCs are probably the ultimate in CAS, I thought I’d play along 🙂  The theme this week is ‘Song in my Heart’ so I spent the day with one song after another popping into my head, depending on what I was doing (Heard it Through The Grapevine, Paint it Black, Knock on Wood, If I had a Hammer … you get the drift!).  My challenge was finding a stamp to illustrate any of them … I don’t have that many … yet!  Anyway, I finally settled on Fade to Grey by Visage ’cause I thought the title was wide enough ranging to allow me to find something appropriate!

I have rather a delicate stamp set called Graceful Grasses … it’s quite small so I used it plenty of times to create a ‘field’ along the bottom of the card … and then practiced a few (!) times to work out which colours worked best to fade to grey with … the lilacs, blues and green appealed most, so here it is, with a simple ‘hello’ sentiment.

Here’s the very brief list of what I used:  Stamps: Craftwork Cards (Image), Stampendous (Sentiment),  Colours: Promarkers.

Hope you’ve are having/have had a good Monday (as opposed to a Blue Monday – New Order – 1983 and 1988 😉 … thanks so much for popping in.  A la prochaine … Anita

    See how fun it is?! It’s addictive! I catch myselft coming up with new ones all the time! Thank you so much for taking the time to participate in my OLW challenge this week! I love the grey and the soft cool colours on your card, Anita!

    Stunning! This is a whole lot of fine, fine stamping! Fading from one color to the other looks beautiful. Perfect execution of soft, elegant simplicity! PS … just want to confirm that you received my rather lengthy e-mail reply…

    This is so elegant, Anita. I love the delicate shading. (You could have gone for Lionel Richie “Hello”. There’s no end to it. Ardyth may have something to answer to here.)


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it!
