Cupcake craft challenge - one layer!



Well here we are, week two as a designer for the cupcake craft challenge. This week we were challenged to create a card with only one layer! Now as you know I love my dp and cs so this was really hard for me (in fact I left it until the very last day to make lol)!! Now we were allowed to use one piece of dp as well as the card base but I decided to simply use the card base as my one layer. I stamped my new (well new to me) gorjuss girl image by sugar nellie and coloured her with my pro-markers. I then framed my image by stamping the floral swirl image by inkadinkadoo all around the edge of the card. I coloured the flower heads and leaves with pro-markers and inked the edge of the card with a light brown cat's eye chalk ink pad. I also smudged some of the same ink over the frame for an aged look. Finally I added stickles to the flowers, leaves and the heart in the girl's hair. I did umm and ahh about adding embellishments but I liked the simplistic look of the card so left it as it was. I am really happy with how this card turned out and think maybe I should make more in the same style, what do you think? I would love to see your one-layer creations so if you have time why not join in with the challenge. Thanks for stopping by.
