One Layer Challenge

Hello there!

I'm still recovering from the surprise of being a Retro Sketches Rockstar, Lol!

I bid a bittersweet farewell to my two eldest at the school gates this morning, I think they were ready to go back and reconnect with all their friends, summer holidays are great but the boredom does start to set in. That is of course unless you are a #supermom and you have a timetable of #superfun activities that not only entertain but educate and enrich their super-perfect lives which is then plastered all over facebook/blogland and makes me feel #superguilty!

*sigh* I am not a supermom....

So, where was I? Ah yes, blogging about a one layer card I made for the Lawnscaping Challenge this week.

So, what did I do? Well, I stamped my bee (Hello Sunshine) first masked both it and a section of my card which I then blended over distress inks. A few splashes of water to create a bit of texture and the panel was complete. I then heat-embossed a white trail behind the bee (Science of Love) and coloured him with promarkers. I stamped the sentiment from #awesome underneath. Then I thought it would be fun if my bee was following something so I added another one flying of the page. As a final touch I rounded off one corner.

Here it is!

Thanks for reading today!
