Over at the Secret Crafter Challenge this week the topic is a stamped flower. I decided to do a one layer card to enter some other challenges. I nearly didn't enter this as I struggle with cards like this as I hate stamping onto the actual card as things always seem to go wrong. Thankfully things didn't seem to go wrong this time. I measured the size of the stamp, folded a piece of copier paper in half and drew out a square shape for half the stamp and then used my tearing ruling to get a distressed edge to it. I then used a mixture of Tim Holtz Mustard Seed and Spiced Marmalade ink pads and my ink dusters to make the background. I then made the square a little bigger again using the tearing ruler and this time used my Fired Brick distress ink pad. The stamp I used was from Elusive Images and I stamped with Versafine and coloured in with Promarkers. I then doodled around the edge of the distressing with my fine liner pen. I'm still not convinced I like it.
