One layer card

Now that I have a little more time I can indulge my passion and participate in this months challenge at Inkurable Stampers.
I stamped SU french flair with brown stazon onto gloss white paper. After letting it dry I sanded vertically and then horizontally until the paper had lost its gloss. Then I sponged over with SU Pumpkin Pie and Tim Holtz Distress Antique Linen and when dry I sanded it again. Next I sprayed water over and sponged off some of the ink drying it thoroughly with the heat gun and finally sanded again. Stamped the Darkroom Door Art de Fleur image and sentiment with brown stazon. Distressed the edges and attached some copper tape ( I think its usually used for stained glass windows) and fashioned a rosette flower with a bit of bling (does this look familiar Lynn?). Finally I attached it to lime green card stock.

Ros I love it. I was trying to figure out the sanding and inking and sanding. Ever consider doing a tutorial? This card is a lovely take on the one layer wonder.
Good luck and Happy New Year friend.
