One Layer Wonder

That's the current theme over at INKURABLE STAMPERS this month, and boy, oh boy, it was so hard for me to do!     What can I say, I love the 3-D look, but I'm very happy with how this card turned out,  and I hope the recepient likes it too   : )

I started with a white piece of cs, onto which I stamped "Head"(from Stampotique Originals) with black Versafine ink, and clear-embossed him.     I then masked him, and then stamped the new Darkroom Door Flourish stamp (isn't it gorgeous!!!) using platinum planet Brilliance ink, and clear embossing powder.     I then put the mask back on Head, and stamped the "Merry Christmas" from THIS Darkroom Door set using some red Marvy ink, and sponged some Adirondack ink (lettuce) all around the white spaces.    I then used an edge distresser, sponged the edges with the red Marvy ink and added the green brads.      I stuck this to the green card base and added the glitter ribbon, using a green brad to hold the bow in place.    BTW, this particular glitter ribbon is fantastic, the glitter doesn't come off, no matter what you do with it, and it easily stays in place with some ds tape (a bit of info just for my friend Lyn)    
I'd just like to shout out a great big Thank You to those of you who've come to visit me lately, and have left me lovely comments, I know we are all pressed for time during the festive season, so it really means a lot to me to know you've taken the time to share your thoughts...Thank You : )

You did an awesome work Vicky. It's difficult for me, as well, making something with only one layer.
Precioso! Besos, Cuchy
