One Layer So Sorry
I was in the process of cleaning and purging my crafty area, and I stumbled upon this long forgotten, but utterly beautiful retired Hero Arts Set, So Sorry. It is one of my few sympathy sets and I just can't let it go.
Even though this set is retired, I stopped cleaning (hah! it wasn't that difficult) and created a one layer card for A Blog Named Hero's One Layer Challenge. I started with a white cardstock base and masked strips off with washi tape. I then added a mixture of blue distress inks, removed the masks, and added more inks. Then came a few dots of water. After that was dry I stamped the vine in black, as well as the sentiment. I hope by adding some May Arts Black Burlap String doesn't disqualify the card from being one layer...I really like the texture it adds to the card.
I hope that I am not the only one that: 1. can't let certain, old stamp sets go and 2. gets distracted when cleaning a crafty area.
