Who Chose that theme?

Hey all its Tuesday and we have a new theme at Top Tip Tuesday
Well its a theme that is by No means one of my strong points
like most of the girls on the Top Tip Team this Theme has been a challenge for us too! hahahahaha so I hear you say what is the theme how bad could it be?
well here it is

One Layer card 
Yup! see told you!
Its a test and I think I have failed!

just before I show you my card
I want to tell you about who our fabulous sponsors for this challenge are

Simon Says Stamp



So then what did I make?
Well the card I have made is based on a card I saw on Pinterest Here
but you can also see it Here on the blog its on
This was my try at the Technique and I think I will be doing some more but with more of the card covered still feels ½ finished... But I guess that is one layer... No frills
My Tip is: Tip - You don't have to use an image on a one layer card
Blend colours and have a splash about with water to create the main feature,
Tie dye is not just for materials. Mine is done with distress inks.

Here are some challenges I am playing with my card:
House of Gilli - Add a Sentiment
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Catered Crop - White (somewhere on your project)
Joanna Sheen - Try Something New
No Matter Which - Anything Goes

Have a great day
and don't forget to come and join us at

  2. Wow, really difficult theme Samantha, still there's plenty of interest to the card, I like it!

  3. Wow, really love this effect you've created. Very organic and subtle. One layer cards can be a challenge, but this is stunning!

  8. Well you've definitely not failed, but I would agree with you that whoever decided on the theme needs to be shot!! But it wouldn't be a challenge if it was easy, right?
