Don't over think it Myrtle

This is what happens when you don't overthink it. 
Continuing along with the one layer idea I whipped the starfish number up in no time at all.  I just sponged over a cut out template with some glimmermist, took the template away and let it dry then stamped with brown versamark.  Tied some satin binding around the edge and voila!

This then lead to this which I love. 
Base card is Kraft.  Next layer is watercolor paper sprayed with glimmermist (the colors of which I have temporarily forgotten) then run through the big shot, sanded and with the scrap paper left over I stamped Darkroom Door Butterflies and the word Harmony in brown versamark (cos it just happened to be there) added a pin and Bobs your Uncle!

WHOO HOO! Way to go Ros!
LOVE LOVE LOVE these one layer cards!
The layers of colours are beautiful.
I feel guilty now, because I have been procrastinating.
I feel inspired...just have to do a few boring chores first! One day left before I return to work :(
