Look, Ma - no layers!


Today's Blogger's Challenge was to use no layers on our cards.

No layers. Hard for paper fanatics! Luckily for me, I know one or two techniques to pull me through this "crisis." And I love COLOR, so no plain white card for me!

I decided to use the Mono Masking Technique from the February 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I am so happy with the results! I love these "From the Crypt" Stampin' Up! stamps, too.

Hmm...who'd ever think that I could use the words "Love" and Crypt" in one sentence?

Love this card Pat. Neat technique to use when you really don't feel like using different layers of cardstock. This really has the feel of lots of paper and has dimension.
