One-Layer Wednesday: Boot Camp!

Hello, hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are rested and rarin’ to go.

I’ve had so little time in my craft room over the last month and I was thrilled to finally get some time to stamp.

I was however, out of practice and more than just a little full of cookies and chocolate.  It took me a while to get back into the groove.

So.  The challenge.  A toughie (I think).

Make a card using ONLY ONE image stamp and a maximum of two ink colours.  You may use the same image repeatedly, but you may only use the one image.  You may also use one sentiment stamp if you choose.  Oh, and no embellishments.  None.  Nada.

I know sometimes some of you feel the challenge is too hard.  I often push myself to do challenges that really stump me.  I feel that it
really helps me grow as a stamper and a card-maker.  I have learned so much from doing challenges even when I haven’t been happy with how my cards turned out.  So, even if you feel it’s too hard, give it a go, you just might surprise yourself!
