Dream Girl...

Happy Thursday!

I saw that there was a challenge over at Three Clovers. The challenge was to do a ONE LAYER card! You could add an embellishment, but the card needed to be one layer. Wow - that's a big challenge for folks like me that just keep adding another layer, another flower, more bling...you get it, right?

Well, I thought - what better opportunity to show the new duster technique that I learned from Darlene Domel last weekend at the Rubber Stamp Getaway!

So, without further ado, here is my card. I will be nice, and just list the supplies below! I've named this card "Dream Girl", as my only embellishment is a little metal piece that says "dream", and this gal looks to me, like she's dreaming of a handsome man coming to rescue her on his beautiful white stallion! If I had to name her, it would be something exotic, like Jasmine, or Genevieve.... I hope you like it! Let me know what you think!


Supplies: Stampland Extra Special Matte Cardstock
Eclipse Art Masking Tape
Marvy Uchida Matchables Dye Ink
Judikins Color Duster Brushes
Stamps: Clock, Tower, Star, Girl are by Stampland Chicago - Vines are Inkadinkado


Thanks so much for looking!

I love this vintage look...and it really is harder than it looks...and then to do it with no layers on top of it all! Great job and thanks for playing along on 3CTC!

Lovely collage work, Patti! And her name should be french, so Genevieve sounds good to me! LOL

Okay, I'm getting off this computer. My eyes are starting to blur! But I'm finally (almost) caught up with blog surfing. Such lovely eye candy and wonderful stories, it's so easy to get caught up for hours.

Love ya, my friend.
