This week at one layer wednesday is nice and easy with plenty of scope. All you have to do is use 1 image, a border and bling. I decided to play with photostamps as they are much overlooked in one layer stamping and there really is no reason why they should be. As we all know Photostamps stamp best onto glossy card, but as we all also know versafine is the best ink for detail (yes you can argue archival is good, but I love my versafine). The problem is that the two are not compatible, versafine does not dry quickly (if it ever dries) on glossy card. The soloution: clear embossing powder, or even better... sparkly clear embossing powder!! And that brings in my bling! I have made this for my sister for her birthday, so inside I added the quote "sisters are different flowers from the same garden" which I did in MS Word.
The flowers are coloured with whispers markers and the bow is paper ribbon.

I am happily married with two wonderful sons. I work full-time as a radiographer. I like to make stuff. Cardmaking, knitting, crochet. I'll try anything crafty.I also have an unhealthy love of maths: I did a degree for fun.
I post on my blog in the hope that I will inspire others to create. I am more than happy for you to be inspired by anything I post, and make it your own. Likewise, I get inspiration from all sorts of sources including the blogs of other crafters, although I would never knowingly directly copy another's work I visit so many blogs I pick up inspiration all over the place. Please know that if you are in my blog lists then you inspire me.
