One Layer Wednesday #59

Susan selected a beautiful photo as inspiration for One Layer Wednesday Challenge # 59.

I decided to use an Inkadinkado flower set that I've had for a while, but have never produced a decent card with. I stamped my favorite flower from the set in Brilliance sunflower yellow. I then masked the flower and stamped leaves from PTI Turning a New Leaf in Memento pear tart. It took five tries to get the leaves right, and I was ultimately happy with just a tiny bit of leaf peeking out to frame the flower.

The yellow and green had me thinking of lemons and limes, so I decided to play with a new Inkadinkado summer assortment mini set that I picked up for a dollar yesterday at Michaels. The sentiment that came with the set was Let's Party, but I switched it out for PTI's Enjoy the Moment.

I will definitely play with this some more, possibly moving ink colors around and adding some bling up by the sentiment, but I'm happy with how these stamped up. I only wish I had this set a couple of weeks ago when Jennifer gave us a summer-themed challenge and I couldn't find anything to work with! :)


Paper: PTI white
Stamps: Inkadinkado, PTI
Ink: Brilliance sunflower yellow, Memento pear tart and tangelo
