When I saw the challenge at Penny Black Saturday was for a one layer card I thought I'd have a go as I've never made one before. Below is what I came up with, but in hindsight I think this may be my one and only one layer card! It was my second attempt and was so nerve wracking not to make a mistake, especially at the end when I stamped the sentiment!
I stamped the Penny Black Softly stamp in Memento London Fog and then coloured it in with a mixture of Prismacolour and Inktense Watercolour pencils. I scored round the edges and gave it a bit of liquid pearl treatment to make it look a bit more interesting. I actually only meant to score down one side and along the bottom but I made a silly mistake and scored along the top so it had to be all the way round. One line top & bottom and two on the sides. The sentiment is from a Stamping Up Set. I quite like how it turned out in the end, but I don't think I'll be doing another one in a hurry :)
