We were having the discussion last week about whether a card with inlaid dies is one layer or not.
Sarah made one for the challenge, but I couldn't decide if it was one layer or not as there has to be a layer behind it to support the joins between the dies. SO... is it or isn't it?
What do you think? It would be good to know!
Please leave a comment with your point of view, it will be really interesting to read what the general opinion is.
Now on to this week, and for our
we have chosen
SU Wetlands stamps one a one layer card with area masked off and Pan Pastels applied.
Many of you will know how much I love chicken images. This one was bought at the Portsmouth Craft Fair recently, I think it's from Woodware. It's coloured with Copics and Mirage pens and the backdrop is embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.
A bit of a soppy looking chicken isn't she!
Using distress inks (picked raspberry, seedless preserves & barn door)
I inked an off-cut of watercolour cardstock, spritzed with water
to allow the colours to blend then left to dry.
From this panel I die-cut the dragonfly
which is a standalone die set from Clearly Besotted, layered 3 times with the
intricate elegant cut-out dragonfly on top. The same watercoloured panel
is used to create the 'corner' pieces surrounding the front card panel.
More Clearly Besotted stamps used: With a Flourish,
Building Blocks & Sentiment from Spring Flowers
To finish mini silver pearls from Hobby House.
