Layers, moi?

Hello blogworld,

So it's a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin and we'd like to see lots of layers (along with the stamping) on your cards.

Our fantastic regular monthly sponsor, with a £10 voucher for one lucky person, is:

We have two wonderful prizes this week, £10 vouchers from:


That's a bundle of goodness isn't it!!

And to top it all off the DT were given a digi by Stampfairy to play with and this is what I came up with.  Sincere thanks as well here to our Teamie Janneke for her sketch, which if you are as afraid of layers as I am will be a great help - but remember it's optional, you DON'T have to follow the sketch.  Personally without it I would've totally panicked - I really don't do lots of layers, not being able to cut straight doesn't help when you're trying to mat papers and images.

So finally me card:
Front shot:

Close up on image:

I used:

Digi image from the Stampfairy: Lenny Camping, coloured with my Prisma pencils.
Die-cut with, and matted onto, nesties.
Papers: Basic Gray - Archaic
Twine: Wilkinsons!!
Kraft paper: inside of wrapping paper
Sentiment: from a set by Elzybells
My own card blank

So over to you - looking forward to seeing how many layers you can get onto your projects - please remember you do need to fit something stamped in there somewhere as well!

Hope you have a good weekend and see you later,

A challenge, or two:

Anything Goes Challenge Blog: Challenge 62 - Boyz to Men

The Poodles Parlour: Birthday Challenge

Willow Sketchie Challenge: I didn't follow the sketch, but have used twine

Creative Craft Challenges: Boys will be boys

Craft your Passion challenge: 100th challenge - anything goes

Cor, that's a lot - innit!!  Think it's most I've entered, maybe it's not so bad making a masculine card after all!!!
