Bloggers Challenge- One Layer Card

  The Bloggers Challenge today is a one layer card- this was not too easy for me- because of my color choices- I was using the SU color combo chart online,  but was still ending up with some really bad cards......  So, I changes directions, and went to my old standby- any shade of Blue will do for me!
  I used a Technique Junkies technique called Masked Frames from the 12/08-1/09 newsletter-my first time trying this.
  I used the largest oval frame from my nestabilities and made 2 masks- one to stamp through and one to put over the image while I added a touch of color to the outside- it was too 'naked'......  The image is from Stamping Bella .  I colored it in with Su markers. I added a little Shimmerz on the boots and on the flowers on her vest, and put White Gel Pen in the middle of the flowers on her vest.  The images around the masked Frame are from a retired SU sewing set (it says C-1998 on the stamp). The main colors I used are Bordering Blue, Ruby Red and Gray. I used Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Bordering blue on the outer edge, and sponges a few flecks of it on the card and around the edges.
  Please stop by the other Bloggers Challenge players to see their awesome creations for this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day.

This is great. With the way you masked the image, it doesn't even look like a one layer card.
