Technique Friday's!

It has been a very busy week. And that's putting it mildly. LOL My family support group for my husband's company has been wanting to make cards to send to our guys for Fathers Day so they can have cards to send home to their dad's. I needed to come up with a simple, easy, quick design. So, I thought that I would make this weeks technique simple, quick, and easy. This week's technique is to do a no layer, no embellishment card. I call this....

Look Ma! No Layers!

The trick on this technique is, use no layers, no embellishments, and only white cardstock.

Now, before you say this impossible, let me show you my card:I used the truck from Loads Of Love (SU) and the guy from Loads Of Love Accessories (SU). The Best Dad stamp is one I picked up at HL for $3 on sale. I stamped the truck and the guy driving the truck in Basic Black (SU) onto white cardstock (Wally World CS- I'm almost out of my SU White), Then I colored it using regular colored pencils. To give it an extra punch I used my stardust glitter gel pen from Rubber Inspirations to color the "chrome" parts of the car. (It's actually shiny in person.) Then I stamped the Best Dad stamp and colored the heart.

There you have it, a simple, quick, easy, Look Ma! No Layers! card. *grin* This card looks really good in person. My friend saw it and didn't realize it was one of my stamped creations.

Give it a try sometime, you might like it!
