One-Layer Mixed Media Hello Card

 
I wanted to challenge myself to make a one-layer mixed media card. I have never done that before and here is what I came up with!
 
Even though it is one layer, it is full of textures. I had partial background text, some stenciling with distress inks, some stenciling with embossing pastes and some embossing resist effect. It turned out not that difficult and I would definitely make some tries in the future!

The card is for the following challenges:
 

  
2. Hero Arts One Layer Challenge

3. Just Us Girls- Color Week #250


 

4. Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge: July – Embossing Resist Technique


  

Card Details
 
1. All stamps are by Hero Arts.
2. Stencils are mostly by The Crafter’s Workshop.
 
Hope you enjoy looking at my card!
