One layer simplicity challenge #2

the one layer simplicity challenge has replaced the One Layer Wednesday Challenge.
I've been meaning to take part all month and made something today, but then have just spotted that the challenge only runs to the 24th of each month.
Oh well I may as well post it anyway.

The challenge was "Can you repeat yourself"
I made a really simple card, repeated the main stamp to create both a background and a focal image.

I added a little extra touch by cutting into the card at the corners of the masked off area, and then scuffing them with my knife blade to create a faux shabby chic layer. I'm really pleased with this effect so expect to see it a lot more on my cards!

All the stamps are from PaperArtsy

PaperArtsy Reveal : New Lin Brown Eclectica Collection

Time for a very exciting reveal from Paperartsy. Lin Brown has released a new range of stamps, stencils and paints, which work really well with Lin's existing range of stamps and dies.

I used them to make a simple 5"x7" card

and a 6"x6" greyboard scrapbooking piece.

I used the stencil on this ATC in my embossing machine to create the background.

and with  the paints on this large tag

I used the paints with PaperArtsy's crackle and then used the stencils on top for this small tag.

I used a couple of Lin's existing stamp sheet (andd the dies)

WIth one of the new words stamps

The gorgeous new paints
And the fab new stencils

Check out the PaperArtsy blog for even more of the reveal, and ask at your local stamp store for availability.
