AAA Cards CAS Game #146

There's a card challenge at AAA Cards - CAS Game #146

I decided to make a card for this challenge. Often, the time-consuming part is trying t decide what to do. If I'm trying to create something in a short period of time, I tend to go back to some of my favorite card styles. I decided not to add the optional twist of Summer to my card. Here's my one-layer card.

So, one-layer cards tend to intimidate me. I mean, what happens when you make a mistake or drop your stamp or smudge something? Right, it's just half a piece of cardstock. Move on ... right? I started by stamping the cute tea party image from Unity Stamps' Tea Love stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black ink onto an A2 card base, using my MISTI. I let the ink dry a bit before moving to my next step. I masked off an area, just over 1.5" wide using post-it tape. I then added distress oxides (peacock feathers, twisted citron, salty ocean) using one of those oval make-up brushes. Those make-up brushes are so easy to use and make ink application seem so smooth. I carefully removed the post-it tape - emphasis on "carefully". I have ruined a few cards by not carefully removing the post-it tape. I stamped the sentiment, from the same stamp set to complete the card. Once I decided what to do, it took me less than 5 minutes to complete.
