One layer

Today is my day to share my project of the week over on The House That Stamps Built blog.  I'm going to show you how to make this card with these two Repeat Impressions stamps and not a whole lot else:
 You will need:
-a card stock base (mine is white A2 sized)
-stamps ( used Repeat Impressions "Pointsettia" and "Noel")
-a straight edge
-washi tape
-markers (I used a black sharpie to draw the lines and a red sharpie to color the flowers, a gray marker for shading and a gold paint pen for the centers)
-ink (I used versamark and gold embossing powder, but you could just use black or a colored ink if you wanted it to be even easier--I also needed a heat tool for the embossing)

I used my straight edge to draw two parallel lines down the length of my paper with the black marker.
 I adhered a strip of washi tape to each of the lines to create a mask.  Then I stamped my poinsettia image several times within the "frame".
 I removed the tape and colored the images.
 Then I stamped and embossed the sentiment and added gold paint pen to the center of the flowers (I did this after stamping my sentiment so I wouldn't smear any of the gold paint.)  I added two YNS red gumdrops and the card is finished!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
