One layer.....or is it?

Hello, happy Sunday! Today I have a one layer card but I've tried to make it look like it isn't. I tried to recreate the look of doodling in a note book as we all did (still do) when we were younger...



I built up my image using a section of Clearly Besotted Stamps (Just a Note, Happy Everything, Love Hearts, Many Thanks, Teacher's pet) and then masked it off using a posit note. Then I added grey ink shading around the image, hopefully, giving an illusion of layering. To finish i added the paperclip using silver Brilliance ink and a touch a glitter gut to the small hearts.

And here is a side view to prove I haven't cheated!

Challenge inspiration:
Less is more- one layer card with the theme of hearts

Thanks for stopping by,
