Freshly Made Sketches 318

Wednesday, December 20, 2017

Hello hello!  It's Wednesday so that means there's a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  This is our last challenge of 2017 but don't be sad - there's lots of time to play along.  We're leaving the challenge open until January 8th and our first challenge of 2018 will debut on January 10th.  To finish out the year we've got a classic sketch designed by Linda.

I decided to do a kinda-sorta one layer card.  There's a feather challenge going on at Less Is More so I thought it would be fun to stamp a feather and sentiment then draw a box around it a la the sketch.  For that vertical layer I used some embossing paste and a stencil of small circles to create a line above and below the box.  I'm pretty sure it's hard to see in the pic but trust me it's there!  The philosophical question here is if I use embossing paste (plus I heat embossed some gold accents on top of the feather) does this meet the technical definition of one layer?  Does bumpy stuff negate the one layer aspects of a design?  Cue the stamping police for a definitive ruling!

Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget there's plenty of time to play along with our sketch.  Check out the Freshly Made Sketches blog for all the details about our current challenge.  I hope you can round out your year by joining us for our last challenge of 2017.  And I'm sure we'll see you in 2018 too!
