OLS15- Blowin' in the Wind Details

Just another great month of wonderfully done one-layer wonders.  You really filled the gallery with lots of amazing cards featuring our Blowin' in the Wind theme.  I just love all the creativity of this challenge.

The members of the design team have called out a few cards with great details that especially relate to our theme.  It is always a difficult to chose just a few but we hope by doing so, we will inspire or help those who are new to stamping about making minimalist cards special.

We hope you will come back and join us on May 1st for a brand new awesome challenge from our talented Design team member Heather.

EunjoA's card is just the feel of the petals blowing and of course the look of watercolour.


Vicki's card got my attention right away with the rich colours and the unique look she created.

Shirley captured the feeling of wind blown clothes with the angle of her images and the lovely little splatters.

OLS15- Blowin' in the Wind

Welcome to the April OLS challenge.  Karen here, with this month's challenge.
The arrival of Spring has me thinking about warm, sunny, and windy days so that's your challenge this month:

Blowin' in the Wind

This month I challenge you to use show us wind on your card.  Use a straw to blow paint dropped onto your paper.  Stamp an image that shows something blowing in the wind.  How about splatters that go in a direction?  Have  
For my card, I dropped some Bisters onto my paper (Bisters are a paint medium), sprayed with a generous amount of water and then used a straw to blow the ink around on my card.  
 Don't forget to keep it ONE LAYER!


1.  Your card must be a single piece of cardstock folded in half.  No other layers allowed.

2.  Use the theme Blowin' in the Wind to create your card.  Keep embellishments to a minimum.  

3.  Post your card somewhere online and link to it using the InLinkz button below.  If you link to your blog, please link to the individual post and not the blog homepage.

4.  Most important...have fun.
