The Ways to Use It challenge this week was to make a one-layer card. I love doing those so I had to play along. These are usually easy for me, but I was using some new supplies and techniques so I had to give this a difficulty rating of 3.
I've just started playing with Gelatos. This time I only wanted a touch of color on my stamped bg, so I used a watercolor wash technique, touching the wet brush to the Gelato and putting a light wash on the paper. I used two shade of pink and one of lavender. Plus gold for the border which I smeared with my finger.
The bg and Bible stamps are both new ones that I got this week. I also attempted a little collage stamping by heat embossing the Bible and "Hope."
It's not my style and I'm not sure whether I like, but I think I succeeded at what I was trying to do, and that's always a good thing.
I can think of several occasions to use this card. Thank you to our Pastor, a sympathy card, an encouragement card for someone in a serious health battle, welcoming a new member to the church, etc.
