One Layer Fusion

Hello!

It's been a long time since I've played One Layer Wednesay, which makes me sad. My very first ever one layer card was made for OLW, and it was SO DIFFICULT! I think I made about five versions, and none were fabulous. These days I make one-layer cards with a little more ease and less panic. I'm entering One Layer Wednesday #134, which is on Ardyth's blog this week. The challenge is to use "3". I used three stamps and three colours.

This is also my second entry for Fusion Challenge #1. This time I'm using the sketch only and entering Jackie's challenge. I flipped the sketch upside down (there is a little story about distraction when stamping repeat patterns which led to the upside down sketch).
I used PTI Square Prints and Stylish Sentiments: Birthday. Colours are SU! Crumb Cake, Pumpkin Pie, and Early Espresso.

Despite the overlap of the squares (necessary to get those lines to match up) and the slightly wonky edges, I really like how this card turned out. The imperfection feels okay in this case.

I'm loving Fusion! I love this concept. :-)

Thanks for coming by!

OMG - I tried SO HARD to do this with that set - you perfected it! Well done! I didn't think of overlapping the squares, that was definitely my problem. I love the bold pops of orange! Thanks for playing along with OLW!

"A little more ease and less panic" - I can relate to that. I love your card, and those colors are terrrific together.
