Lots of Layers

Welcome back for our next challenge at Creative Knockouts.  For this challenge, we want you to layer it up, that's right - show us lots of layers.  This is always a fun challenge and a great way to showcase those background papers.

Our sponsor for this challenge is The Paper Shelter and they graciously provided me with this image,  A Piggie's Happy Place, how cute is this little pig!

I colored piggy with Copic markers then added Wink of Stella to the black spots, glossy accents on the flowers and stickles on the butterflies.  The "Thanks" die-cut is a no-name brand that I picked up probably over a year ago and have never used it until now.  I like how it looks and hope to use it more often.

For the banners I decided not to stick them down flat with tape, I just used tape on the top portion and slightly curled the ends up for a little more added dimension. The background papers are from the Summer Fresh collection by Simple Stories and the Kraft paper flowers are from Michaels.  

Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your creations!

  1. I love this card Michelle! Love those papers so much, the flowers are so pretty and you have coloured this lil guy perfectly!

    Great work!

  2. You knocked this one clean out of the ball park, Michelle! Your layers are fantastic! I do so like layered cards. Paper choices are spot on, sentiment (another layer!) is so clever, and your embellishments are perfect final touches. Your coloring of the little piggy is wonderful and I like how the flowers of your digi echo those of the paper. Bravo!

  3. Adorable and oh so cute! Lovely card! Thanks for joining us at Try it on Tuesday!
