Week 110 One Layer

It's a really tricky one this week girls!
Not only is it 
but we are also asking you for 
If we could use papers it would be easy, right? 
We know you'll come up with some fabulous designs and are really looking forward to seeing what appears.


So as you read this I'm either at the airport or in Paris for the week so I'm sorry I won't get to visit you all... Here are my cards for this week

So I did use papers... digi papers that is... they are perfect for the one layer card if you manipulate them a little in word or print over part of a card.  The first card is stripes from Pink Petticoat printed as a rectangle on A4 then cut down the middle to give the tent card.  I then stamped the spots from Paper Smooches gently over the top.  The sentiment is Kirsty Wiseman and I've doodled round the edges

For the second card I cropped pink petticoat paper again over A4 using word and then printed the same sheet with the sentiment.  It's finished off with stripes of black twine from the ribbon girl and a embosslit butterfly from Stampin UP

I spent some time looking through my stamps for evidence of spots or stripes and found this freebie from a magazine which I believe is Hot off the Press. There was just a striped deck chair and a plain one, to which I added the  necessary spots and coloured with Promarkers.
The sentiment is made with a set of Sizzix alphabet stamps.
This one is a simple collage of stamps. The spots and stripes are Tim Holtz stamps, overstamped with the plant image from Unity.
I began by stamping the spots in Bundled Sage distress ink and then clear embossing it. This was followed by the stripes in Iced Spruce DI, which I simply let dry. The final stamping was done in Pine Needles DI, which again I clear embossed. Job done!
Your spots or stripes could be dry embossed too...what can you show us this week?

  10. Naja, das ist wirklich schwierig, zu schwierig wie ich finde. One Layer dazu müsste nicht sein. Leider habe ich das auch überlesen, und meine Karte passt deshalb auch nicht dazu. Es wäre nett,wenn die Nr. 74 gelöscht werden könnte.
    In Zukunft werde ich genauer lesen, und darum auch wahrscheinlich, wenn die Herausforderungen so schwierig sind, nicht mehr oft mitmachen können.
