ONE Altenew in 2022 - April

The 3rd of each month is a special day here on my blog - it's the day that Kelly (the founder of this series), Barb, and I share our One Plus Twelve cards. The idea is to use the same ONE stamp (not a set) each month to create a card. Sentiments can be used, too, if we choose. 

My ONE stamp this year is a beautiful floral stamp from the Altenew Vintage Garden stamp set.

For this month's card, I started with a A2 size piece of white cardstock. I added two strips of low-tack painters tape to form a mask and then blended five colors of Ranger Distress Inks into the opening. Once satisfied with the look I removed the tape and stamped the flower. I then used a die to cut the piece to the size I wanted.

I hope you'll keep an eye out on the 3rd of each month this year to see how I do with this ONE stamp - and also will check out Kelly's and Barb's ONE stamp cards, too. Speaking of which, let's head over to their blogs now to see this month's cards.

Very creative idea to add color to only one strip on your card. It really makes that flower pop! Beautiful card! Love this idea. Thanks for sharing.
