Today's One-Layer Wednesday Challenge is REPETITION. This is a very good chance for you to use those little accent stamps that come in sets...you know, the little tiny stamps that you wonder how the heck you'll use.
Yeah, THOSE stamps.
Like the little leaf pair that comes with PTI's Father Knows Best Set.
Or the little concentric circle stamp in the same set.
See what I mean? Repeating those little suckers makes them pretty useful, in this case as a ground for the trees. Repeating the leaves or circles helps unify the design and glue the whole thing together visually. Plus, it's SIMPLE. Visually simple. It makes sense to the eye very, very quickly and makes the harmony-loving soul breathe a sigh of relief.
Or perhaps I'm being melodramatic. It's been known to happen.
My using those little stamps is just a suggestion (but it's pretty cool, isn't it?). Feel free to use repetition any way your muse moves you.
1. One-layer cards are defined as one piece of cardstock folded in half. That's it.
2. Use repetition of images, bling, sentiments, small embellishments, or whatever...as long as it's simple, it's good.
3. Post a link to your card online using the OLW7 InLinkz button on the sidebar of Simplicity.
4. The most important rule of all: HAVE FUN!
Also, while you're making your one-layer wonders, you might--just might--mess one up. DO NOT PANIC! Just cut what's salvageable and make yourself a two-layer card. Like I did here:
It's still good, even if it doesn't qualify for the challenge. Lemons to lemonade. Glass half full. Always look on the bright side. It's a bright, bright, bright sunshiny day!
I know. I'll shut up now.
