Live for the moment

This card is made for the Hero Arts Challenge: "One layer cards".
It seems to be easy: making a one layer card. You don't need pattern paper, embellishments, ribbon and so on. But it isn't. You have to know how your ink reacts on this particular paper, wich ink is suitable to make a background, and wich ink you use for the stamps you would like as a focal point. The placement of your stamps is also important. And finally you get a result wich is what you wanted, what you like OR something totally different from what you had in mind :)

When I started this card, I had a card (a bought one) as inspiration. But while going on we discovered that it had a different look and a different feel. And that was OK! And while going on we found already a destination for this card, just by looking through my stamps.
Finally I want to say it is not a perfect card, but it was very rewarding and satisfying to make.
Hope you liked your visit!
