Happy Monday? What did you do this weekend? I got to see one of my bestest friends that I have not physically seen in years though we keep in touch. I got to hold and feed a newborn and felt spiritually fed at church. So I enjoyed mine. Yay.

I played in the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoaststampers ONE LAYER WONDERS.

So the challenge is take your cardstock, fold in half and that's it. You can stamp but not add any more layers of paper to it. So I made my card a circle card using my cuttlebug and the circle nestabilities. I masked my mushrooms and sponged while they were masked. I removed the masks and colored just under the tops and left the stems white, I thought they made the card pop. I sponged layers of blues then went over with Vintage Photo Distress ink (my favorite).

I used this fun new release MUSHROOM WHIMSEY from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.
