Well, this week's Hump Day Hop challenge really was a challenge for me!! The challenge was to create a card using no layers. NO LAYERS!! Just the card base...in all my years of stamping, I don't think I've EVER made a card without layers! So, I really struggled with the challenge...but, here is what I came up with...The card base is GP110 white cardstock. I used a large oval template that I found in my wastebasket from where I punched out an oval using my Nestabilities. I stamped the Pirate Girl from Pirate's Life inside the oval. She is colored using Copics. I then sponged around the inside of the oval using Going Gray ink, then doodled around the oval using my SU Basic Black marker. I stamped the "All I want" and "...is you!" sentiments from the Holidays Accessories set in the upper left and lower right corners using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also used the snowflakes from the Accessories set and stamped all around the oval in Going Gray, then lightly sponged using Bashful Blue. Lastly, I attached red self-stick beads to the corners with the sentiments. I'm not quite sure what I think of this card...but I've decided that layers are my friend!! I missed not having any layers on this card!!!
So...hop on over to the other Bombshell Girls' blogs and see how they fared without using layers. I'm sure they're creations will be fabulous!!
