One Layer Card


We have a brand new challenge at Top Tip Tuesday for you. The lovely Deneen is our hostess this fortnight and she is challenging you to create a card with only one layer. Before you panic she's put together a fabulous tutorial on the TTT blog with great ideas for making your one layer card stand out. Click the link to view it and all of the amazing inspiration by my teamies and our guest designers. The DT was privileged to work with images from Robyn's Fetish and my card features Gilded Christmas Dove. I determined what colors I wanted to use and laid the base color down with Copic's. To get the stained glass effect I was going for I applied opal liquid pearls on the body of the dove and stickles in red, green, yellow, and royal blue to highlight the graphic design. My tip-I used a black Copic marker to outline the edge of my digital image which visually lifts it off the page. A craft knife helped me trim a few of the tail feathers setting my dove in motion and I'll use a die cut label to cover my teeny tiny cuts on the inside. Some of us on the DT struggled with this challenge, myself included, and Samantha was kind enough to let us add some bling and ribbon if it wasn't too much. ;) So I did and now it doesn't feel so bare lol.
