It's time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and this week, we want to challenge you to either use only 'one layer' or to bring it on and 'layer up as much as possible'! So what's your preference, minimalist or fully loaded? I love them both! Oh the dilemma!! But actually, I've been poorly so I went for the 'easy option' and chose a single layer card. A single layer card, of course needs a 'fabulous image'!
I have loved these 'grown up' Anya's ever since I met them at The Greeting Farm and have a few now in my collection. This one I just love with her gorgeous strappy wedge heels and cutsie hair. She's called 'Anya Celebrates' and there are several others in this grown up Anya style too, just like her. She comes with two sentiment choices, I've used the one which fit my purpose best for this card.
I chose to do a really simple score line around the card to 'frame' the image and did the same around the sentiment to help it stand out. I'm not a doodler, I just can't do it with any degree of pizzazz, so I score. It works for me! I like the elegant understated finish it gives. The image was coloured with my Promarkers of course, and I've just 'grounded' it with a little grey under the feet. Voila, fini.
Our sponsor for this challenge is one of my all time favourite craft stores - Live & Love Crafts. I shop with Sandy whenever I'm after the most delicious shabby chic papers, gorgeous laces, and delicious shabby chic embellishments. Which is more often than I should! But who can resist all that gorgeous Maja and Pion Design in one place? I'm not great at the shabby chic style myself at all, but I so love seeing others who do this style so well and I LOVE all the embellishments and papers. I just use them 'my way'. So if you've never discovered the 'treasure trove' that is Live & Love Crafts, go and have a look, you won't regret it!
