One Layer

  I am trying to create CAS and one layer cards, so jumped at the chance for this Asian mingle. I always love seeing what other members of the mingle come up with.

   I stamped the image on post-it notes and made a mask, fussy cut it out. I stamped the image and then placed the mask over it.  I masked 1/2" on all sides also using post-it notes.  I sponged on the red. The leaf and Kanji images were then stamped onto the red. I colored the image using Copics, There is Sakura Stardust Gelky roll pen on the calligraphy pen holder and around the edge of the red mask.
  I bought the Geisha and leaf/bird image at a stamp sale, so do not know who makes them.

 My partner Nancy F. sent me this cool card:

 The red is embossed. I do not know where she got this cool Asian Washi, but I love it. I turned the card on its side for picture taking just for the Washi.

Challenges (for the first card) card:

Shelly your card is amazing. Masking is always such difficult work but you really did a wonderful job. Hope you have a super weekend. We are moving Tricia and Jamie to a two bedroom apartment this weekend. The twins still in the NICU but doing well.
