One Layer Wonders | Designer Creative Challenge

Jan from handcrafthobby here with you today.  I'm so happy to be back on the Craftin Desert Divas blog sharing with you how I created multiple one layer cards using masking with masking paper and stencils.
I used the Holiday Fairies stamp as the main image for all cards. I used both the Magic Castle and Hill Scene 2 stencils to create a background, hills, and puffy clouds. As for the frame, I love to use Torn Paper dies for decorative edges. To make each card look a bit different, I used various ink colors, as well as different sentiments from Snow Day and Santa's Helpers stamp sets.

One layer cards can be very complex and require multiple maskings to layer objects on top of each other. Or it can be easy and achievable for mass production. I'm sharing with you a short video tutorial of how I created these one layer cards.

Here are some screenshots of the processing while I created them:

I positioned both the Magic Castle stencil and Hill Scene 2 stencil onto the desired area. Secure the card panel to the surface as well as the stencils on top of the card tock to make sure the stencils will not shift when inking.

Flip the stencil for multiple uses as positive and negative areas.

When changing the ink color, always clean the stencil with damp cloth or wet wipe so the previous ink will not be transferred to your next project.

Here are all the finished 5 cards. They're the same design but different looks.  

And here is an overview with the Distress Oxide inks and Copic markers that I used on each card.

One layer cards are my favorite type of card to create. I love fussy cutting paper and masking. I hope you enjoy the video and give it a try. Who knows... you might love it too!
