A One Layer Challenge!

Happy Friday!! So this week it's my turn to host the Friday Hanna Stamps challenge and have I got a doozy of a challenge for you guys - hee hee...this week I challenged everyone to make a ONE LAYER CARD using their Hanna or Riley stamps!! *gasp* I know - a ONE layer card!? Yikes - you know I love my layers - so this was an actual challenge for me - not only that - but my Copics are pretty much glued to my right arm - but for this card - since it was only one layer I had to use my Prisma pencils/Gamsol to color my image (I'm not very good with them so be kind - LOL!). I did use my Copic airbrush and air compressor to do the coloring on the background wall - when you use the airbrush - it puts on such a fine mist of color that it doesn't bleed thru the back. I used the doctor and eye chart stamp from the Hanna Stamps "Hospital" set to create my scene in the center of my card - I drew in the boards on the wall with a ruler and my Copic multiliner pen. I did the Cuttlebug embossing around my image with the CB Spots and Dots embossing folder - I used the technique seen here on the Cuttlebug Spot blog for this card. I finished off my one layer card by accented it with some knotted ribbon. I hope you'll pop over to the Hanna forum and play with me today!! You can view today's challenge here. I SO admire those who can put together amazing one layer cards and can't wait to see what you'll come up with!! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
