One-Layer Wednesday 16: Stamp a Scene

Often, scene stamps are sooooo pretty and soooo intimidating. Some stampers might feel like it's necessary to color them in, layer, spotlight, or do all sorts of things to "finish" them. I, on the other hand, feel no such need.

Because I am lazy. And not ashamed to admit it. To the entire Internet.

So this week's challenge is to do something simple and one-layered with a scene. You can use a ready-made scene stamp, as I have because I am lazy, or make your own scene.

Rules for OLW16

1. A one-layer card is defined as a single piece of cardstock folded in half.

2. Make a scene using some sort of simple treatment...or no treatment at all. Remember to keep embellishments to a minimum.

3. Please share your creation by posting your card online and then using the InLinkz button in the sidebar of Simplicity to link to it.

4. Most important of all...HAVE FUN!

In other business...I'm now back from a fabulous vacation with my sister and her family, and will dive into commenting on the OLW15 cards today. The few that I had a chance to look at while in Maryland are FABULOUS!
