Quiet Solitude

I've been having fun with one layer cards! With a little masking and some great background stamps you can really have some fun.  For this card, I grabbed my Nature Notes plate from Rogue Redhead Designs.  I decided to do a little twist on the Technique Junkies' technique "It Takes Two".

I used sweet Clarice, the woman from Nature Notes.  I masked her and all the white space around her frame except for a wide stripe along the bottom of the card.  I sponged on some Dried Marigold distress ink and over-stamped with Sequin Waste background from Behind the Scenes with Spiced Marmalade.  Using Vintage Photo distress ink, I stamped my Handwritten Music background over all the masked areas.  I removed the masking and added the sentiment, also from Nature Notes.  I loved the way the intense background contrasted with the white space.

Stamps: Clarice and sentiment from Nature Notes, sequin waste and handwritten music
backgrounds from Behind the Scenes (Rogue Redhead Designs)

I am entering this card into the following fabulous challenges:
