Edited: For those of you looking for the OLW Challenge this morning, I apologize. Last night I scheduled the OLW to post at 4:00am this morning because I knew I would not have computer access today. I just received emails from Ardyth and Susan letting me know the OLW was not posted (Thanks ladies). Again, I'm sorry. I've never had this problem before.
How exciting! We've reached our 100th One-Layer Wednesday Challenge. Thank you Susan for starting this fun, clean and simple challenge. I feel like there should be balloons and confetti and cake! Oh yes, cake would be good.
Additionally, I want to welcome Ardyth Percy-Robb and Karen Dunbrook to the One-Layer Wednesday Challenge Team. These gals are amazingly talented. Stop their blogs for a visit!
And now for our challenge! This week it's all about Transportation....Planes, trains and automobiles, oh my! Of course, any form of transportation will do (bikes, scooters, hot air balloons, brooms). What ever direction your creativity takes you.
Here's my card:
When coloring a one-layer
card, Copics really aren’t an option as they bleed through to the other side,
so I choose my Prismacolor pencils for this project. Two years ago I took a class at my local
stamp store, (Rubber Stamp Fantasy, in Marietta, Georgia…awesome!). The class was taught by Karen Lockhart of
Lockhart Stamp Company. She has a wonderful
technique of layering color. The results
are beautiful (hers, not mine. I’m still
practicing.). If you ever have a chance
to take a class from Karen, you won’t be disappointed.
Rules for OLW100
1. A one-layer card is defined as a single layer of card stock folded in half.
No other layers allowed!
2. Make a card using transportation as your theme. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum and NO
ADDITIONAL LAYERS of card stock.
3. Post your card online and link it to the
InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. If you link to your
