One Layer Tilda Card

Well, it is not really a one layer card, more like three layers if you count the card itself, blue cardstock and the white layer. BUT... The main layer with Tilda on it does not have any raised parts, and Tilda herself is not even cut out!! I had challenged myself to make a simple "one layer" card with Tilda, and I am very happy with the way it came out. This Tilda image is just too cute!!

This card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

On this card I used two masking techniques, masking and reverse masking. I stamped Tilda twice, once on the card layer and one more time on the scrap piece of paper. Cut out the one stamped on the scrap and covered my "main" Tilda. I created the oval mask with Nestabilites, and placed it over the card layer. I stamped the Tree with Snowflakes (this stamp is also from Magnolia) in blue ink. Then sponged light blue ink inside of the scallop.

Tilda was colored with Copic Markers. I added Stickles to the white parts of her outfit and also on the tree and the snowflakes.

The greeting is from Hero Arts clear stamp set.

This will be one of the cards for my "One Layer Tilda cards" class at Cranberry Hill Mercantile. This class is scheduled for:

If I hadn't seen it myself I wouldn't believe it. Irina does a one layer card. It's just adorable.
