I'm not sure if this is considered a one layer card since it's a one layer piece on top of my card base, but it's close enough for me. The X-Press It paper was different than any I had used before. I'm undecided on whether I like it better than the papers I have been using or at least just as well. I think it has it's place. It's very smooth to the touch. It behaves a little differently in blending. In this card, I love the effect it has in the blue sky. It almost has a textured look. The more I blended the more texture I got. Maybe it's just me. You can't really tell from the photo, but I took my colorless blender and made little dots randomly in the background hoping for it to look like snow. I couldn't help but add a little wink to my snowman, too. This card took a little time to color, but once the coloring was done there were no more decisions to make. The card was done. I do like it like that. The less decisions I have to make, the better off I am..lol.
There are still a few more days of techniques and several more images from class to work with. I'll be sure to share when I get more done. Thanks for stopping by!
