Just a note...

"Just a note" is a card inspired by the Annabel Stamps blog Challenge AC161 and also by The Paper Player's challenge #142 - One layer card, so I used the sketch on a one layer card. The moment I saw the sketch, it kept me thinking that how can I combine the two elements together and here I go.... I got the idea of a bird and the rising sun :)

To create this card, I used a flying bird clip art from Microsoft word, printed by placing it at the right place in my word doc. Next I drew a quarter of a circle using my compass. I then created a mask from scrap paper for rest of the card except for the sun. I colored the sun with my Memento Dew drop dye inks using a sponge dauber to give it an ombre effect, just like the sun :) I colored the bird black using my sharpie marker to give it an effect of seeing a bird from far away flying in front of the sun :) Finally added the sentiment and doodled the stitches border around the card.

The challenges that inspired me are -

Hope you enjoy my card :)


  1. Deepti, this is a work of art. I love the gradient color of the setting and the bird is the perfect addition to give the card movement. you really showcased that a one layer card does not have to be boring. It allows you to focus on the technique, the sentiment and the image. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week and thanks for rocking my challenge.
