May CS Challenge

I was quite inspired by this month's single layer.  I didn't have any of the stamps used in the article but I think the ones I used came close.........

That is super, Mickie!  What did you use for the masking?  Margaret
Jennie

Beautiful Mickie - not got my mag yet!
Mickie

Thank you ladies.  It really is quite absorbing to do and very relaxing but as with everything else, not as easy as it looks.

Margaret I used Post-It notes, I know in the article they said they wouldn't work as well but I didn't have any trouble.

Looks great Mickie.  I always use post-it note for masking too, though would be easier if the whole thing was sticky.
Mickie

Sarah, Hobby Art sell a spray that you can make your own post it notes with.  I can see that it could be useful.  Jenny Mayes, in her video, reckons that you could use the created "post it" about twenty times.  I am sure that would be more than enough Laughing

Here is my card I think I should have stamped flowers and butterflies in black.

That is a nice take on the single layer Becky.   Laughing  I don't know that it needs any black.  

I like this technique - time was we would have thought we should have added bling and brads and maybe some ribbon.  Not to mention a layer or two..................!

Lovely card Becky

A lovely card, Becky - the nature theme works really well with the torn paper masking. I presume that's how you did this.  I think the butterflies are fine in green.  Margaret

This is my attempt at a single layer card - I used low tack masking tape which I got from my local craft shop and was pleased with how easily it worked.  I had to buy an embossing board because I didn't have one but it does finish the card off.   Margaret

Thats lovely Margaret love the colour and yes mine was torn paper and a brayer.

I agree with you Mickie it is weird to do a one layer card maybe I will do some Xmas cards that will be easy  Laughing

Lovely card Margaret.....
Mickie

Love the colour you have used Margaret.  Really nice card.   Laughing

Good idea Becky to use this technique for Christmas cards.  Think I might do some too.

Lovely cards Becky and Margaret.  Love all your colours and ideas.  Still not got my mag yet Rolling Eyes
margaret rorie

It seems funny about your mag, Jenni, because I got mine ages ago although perhaps location doesn't make a difference.  Hope it comes soon.

Lovely work ladies - I'm really impressed with this style of stamping, so will have to give it a go when I get some time next week.

I tried to do something similar with my grungy monday piece this week, just layered stamping with no 3d effects.  It was quite difficult!

Lovely tag Jennie - I love that quote!
vonny

beautiful tag and agree about the quote
Mickie

Love this tag Jennie.  Do agree that this technique feels quite odd until you get used to it that is!

That's so pretty Jennie.  The others are lovely too.  Must give this one a try - you all make it look very easy!
