Almost a one layer card


Today I have an almost one layer card to share with you.  I was inspired by Alice to try her wonderful cloud backgrounds.  Alice has done a tutorial on it here.  I've long been an admirer of her clouds & was surprised at how easy it is to make them.  Mind you about halfway through layering my clouds I remembered that I do have a plastic template of clouds (& sea) so will give that a go next time.  I used this wonderful sketch from Card Patterns.  I am delighted with how this card turned out.  I've basically used Distress inks to "colour" the c/s into pp.  I did stamp the butterfly seperately & attached it to the card after colouring it in with copics.  I also changed the colour of the lace with ink & water in a mini mister to suit the card. 

Thanks for stopping by & have a great week :D - Happy crafting everyone xoxoxo
