The One-Layer Wednesday challenge at Simplicity is to make a one layer card using orange, yellow, and aqua. My new Hero Arts designer butterflies were still out from this week's Less is More challenge card, so I decided to keep playing with them.
I stamped a sentiment in aqua and stamped my butterflies in orange and yellow. I can't tell you how many times I stamped those butterflies, choosing which butterfly would go where and what color and position it would be in! :)
I attempted to cut around the wings of the largest butterfly with my exacto knife to give it a little dimension while still keeping it one layer, but it just didn't look clean enough. That PTI paper is so thick - perfect for one layer cards but not so easy to cut through.
Looking at the photo, the sentiment seems a little weak compared to the butterflies. At 1:00 in the morning it didn't bother me, but in the light of day things always look a little different. I will probably remake the card with a stronger blue. Overall, though, I really like this card and I think those butterflies are beautiful in cantaloupe and tangelo!
