One Layer Wednesday #116 (Create a Scene)


At Snippets this week, Karen is hosting One Layer Wednesday, where the theme is ‘Create a Scene’.  Karen’s work is really wonderful to see and as if that wasn’t enough to merit a trip over there, she has some fantastic news to share … so do go and have a look to find out what the news is and to check out all the amazing creations she has … congratulations Karen!

This week, the theme is to create a scene … and I have a stamp that seemed perfect for it … it’s very similar to our surrounding countryside, where there are vines as far as the eye can see (although they look like sticks at the moment as the grapes have been harvested and the leaves have fallen!).  So my card is simpler than simple really … stamped, watercoloured and given a dry embossed frame and outline … not exactly inside the olde comforte zone, but that’s the idea of doing a OLC challenge!

Here’s the recipe:  Cardstock: Crafter’s Companion,  Stamp: Woodware,  Colours:  Marvy Le Plume Watercolour Pens.

I’m going to have a quick scoot around blogworld to catch up on what’s been going on in Challenge Land … I may see you there (in a virtual sense of course!).  Thanks so much for your visit … Anita 🙂

    Beautiful! Your scene really does capture what I think the French countryside would look like. It must be beautiful when the vines are gloriously green. The water color effect is perfect. You did such a wonderful job with this card that I never would have guessed that this was out of your comfort zone! Love the grey outline, love the card 🙂

    Funny – when I saw the card, I thought – that looks like France! I love how the leaves pop outside the frame. This is a lovely OLW scene!
