One Layer Week 93 Houses

First of all may I say a huge thank you to all those kind people who emailed offering help whilst Mandi is getting her business up and running.

Without further ado I would like to let you know our choice (Mandi  helped choose too).

She is well known to most of you, a faithful LIMette, a consummate crafter and a weekly source of inspiration to us all.
She had emailed with her offer within moments of last week's post going live and I'm sure that she will be a very popular choice.
Welcome Jen!

Now onto our challenge for this week which is 
with the theme of 

I thought for my first week as a guest I'd use a couple of my signature styles .. stitching and kraft.  I used digi images from Tiddlyinks.

The first card was coloured with prisma pencils in bright colours and I simply printed the image straight onto a sheet of A4 card and then cutting it out central. The sentiment is pink petticoat. I then stitched a couple of rows round the edge in an ah-hoc manner and added a backing on the inside of the card to cover up the stitching. this was simply cut 2 mm smaller than the card blank.

My second card uses a firm favourite kraft printed with the digi. This time I coloured in with my prisma pencils as I really love how the colours stand out on the kraft, I finished it off with some twine from the ribbon girl and rounded one corner.  Hope you like them.

Here is a card made from a a quick run across the card with my Stampin' Up wheel. I love these quirky houses. I coloured it with in neutral shades with watercolour pencils and a water brush. The sentiment is also Stampin' Up.

It's funny how Mandi and I often would choose to do similar things each week, without any prior consultation, and this week Jen and I have both chosen lighthouses!
This one is an image from Art Impressions, with a few rocks from Hobby Art and a sentiment from Inkylicious. Again it's coloured with watercolour pencils and a water brush.

What houses are you going to use this week? We can't wait to see!

  11. hey Jen thanks for the lovely comment on my door card. Actually though, it IS just one layer. Shadowing and sponging tricks the eye. However, I must confess I did not know you could not use ribbon and that it counts as a layer. Thanks for correcting me. Hugs~Donna
