This week's it's a one layer challenge at 'Less is More', and once I stopped trying to wriggle out of it, it gave the opportunity to try something I've wanted to do for ages. Which is to take a one layer challenge, combine it with a (layered) sketch challenge, and create a faux layered card.
A nice simple layout at Tuesday Morning Sketches obliged, along with the pretty palette at Simon Says Wednesday (I used Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry and Shabby Shutters distress, with Cloudy Blue and Stream Adirondacks). Last but not least, this is about as grungy as I get: hand drawn lines, mottled hand sponging, and the old 'watery' brayer technique (ink up, roll over scrunched up paper, roll on - hey presto).
The fish and word chain stamps are from Clarity, and I also used their banner and Jo's bubbles stencil to achieve this effect.
