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


  1. Cool idea to create a faux layer! Smashing card
