One-Layer Swirly Flowers

Hi! As always, I've been struggling with a one layer card. This one is for the One-Layer Simplicity challenge: "Strip Down". I had a couple of attempts at this, as when I emboss on a one layer card my card often goes wiggly. maybe I get it a bit too hot?

Anyway, here's my card:




I masked the strip down the side of the card, embossed the image with Versamark and clear embossing powder, and then coloured with markers and inks. I added little white dots with a Uni Posca pen to brighten the purple flower, and to add a bit of interest to the leaves.

I should have stamped the sentiment in purple or pink, as the yellow looks a bit light, but it shows up better on the actual card than it does on the photo.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

One-Layer Simplicity: "Strip Down"

Happy Little Stampers: "Masking"

Addicted to Stamps: "Anything Goes"

CAS-ual Fridays: "Pretty Patterns"
