ODBSCL207 - One layer

The challenge this week at Our Daily Bread Designs (ODBDSLC207) is to use one layer! I have to say this is not my forte although I ended up making a few and think I could get used to these one layer cards!! Here are two of my cards:

Elizabeth Whisson, Our Daily Bread Designs, ODBD, Psalm 9:1, Cherry Blossom, handmade card, one layer, CAS

For this card I have splattered some Copics (B00, B02 and B05) and Distress Marker (seedless preserves) across the card using a Color Spritzer (I am yet to add an airbrush system to my collection). I then stamped the flowers from Our Daily Bread Designs Cherry Blossom set and coloured with Prismacolor pencils. Cherry Blossom is from the June release and they have a whole range of wonderful flowers - check them out here. I added some liquid pearls (Lavender Lace) on the flowers. The verse is from the same set - Cherry Blossom. I then doodled a small edge around the card using black Copic multiliners 0.03 and 0.05 mm.

Here is another one layer card I made:
Elizabeth Whisson, Our Daily Bread Designs, Poppy, Psalm 100:5, handmade card, CAS, one layer, prismacolor pencils

For this card I have stamped Our Daily Bread Designs Poppy single onto the front of a white card and stamped Psalm 100:5 from ODBD Scripture Collection 11 in the top right. I've coloured the Poppy with my Prismacolor pencils and added some white gel pen for highlights. I've also done some doodling around the edge with 1.0, 0.5 and 0.1 mm black Copic multiliners.

I am entering this card in the Word Art Wednesday challenge #136 - Anything Goes.
