Haven't done a One Layer Wednesday in so very long but couldn't resist the theme of SNOWFLAKES. This very clean and simple card features one of my oldest stamps from PSX and a retired A Muse sentiment. Gradient color has been really popular in paper crafting the past several months and it is a look easily achieved with Adirondack Acrylic Paint Dabbers.
Use painters tape to block off an area for your paint. Applying the darkest color on the bottom and the lightest color on top first makes it easy to blend in your middle color for a gradual change of hue without obvious "color blocks". I love these paint dabbers cause there is nothing to clean up!!
Heat embossing the snowflake adds a bit of shimmer to this very simple card. This stamp is special to me since it was used on the very first card I ever had published.
Back in 2007 this card appeared in The Stamper's Sample Catch-Up issue. Such a thrill to see my name in print
