Well, are you ready? Yes, you've guessed it, it's time for One Layer week over at Less is More. I think there's lots of scope for this one this week, see what you think...
I'll get straight to my cards, I have two for you this week (I did plan to have a third but it didn't go to plan so got filed under bin!)...
I started by stamping the flower, the flower head being stamped in two shades of orange to give it some depth at the centre. I left it a few minutes to ensure it was dry before masking off a curved section and blending with two shades of Distress Ink. After removing the masks I splattered some water drops to remove some colour, and finished with the sentiment, which was manipulated slightly to follow the curve.

I decided to do some faded out ghosting on my second card. Not entirely happy with it, not sure why. Perhaps it's the colour, hmmm...but makes it gender neutral I suppose.
I die cut a curve from a scrap of card and used it to mask off the base of my card. I then blended some green Distress Ink, gently fading it out upwards. A leafy stencil was then placed over the inking, spritzed with water and then blotted away. I curved the sentiment stamps to follow the curve of the design. I think this one needs something else, but left it alone for now before I went ahead and ruined it :)
