Hey everyone! It’s time for my challenge on the Scrapshotz Papercrafting Group on Facebook! I hope that you have been following along today with all the amazing challenges the designers have come up with for you !
My challenge is about layers.
Have some die cuts, enamel dots, embossing folders and stamps in your stash? What about wood veneers, buttons, gel pens and border punches…. any of these hanging out in your scrap space? Now is the time to pull these and any other embellishments you have out and use them to create some fun layers on your project. Don’t just put a cardstock mat behind your photo, stamp or emboss it first. Add an enamel dot or some Nuevo drops to your flower centers or scattered on your layout page. Layer some die cuts together and outline them with gel pens to make a fun cluster. Let’s not forget pop dots! Layering is a great way to add some textures and visual interest to your project and take it to the next level.
As I had mentioned, I was highlighting a previous card that I made (this one for Dragonfly Dreams)….
I really loved this card and it is one of the favorites that I’ve made. I added a lot of different layers here. Starting with my base you can see I have a die cut layer with a few details on it. I added a variety of flowers & leaves, again in layers, some of which were popped up with dots so that it adds a bit more interest. You can’t really tell but I also added an extra layer on some of these flowers with some Wink of Stella as well as some white gelly pen. I did layers for my HAPPY sentiment as well, and then some small gems.
It’s so easy to add layers to your project, with just what you have on hand. I hope that you will head on over to the FB page and play along with my challenge and some of the other ones as well. There is a ton of inspiration and of course prizes!
See you there.
