Layers! I love layers. I restrain from adding more layers to my project because Hubby gets angry when he has to stand in line at the Post Office (which he hates) and try and convince the post office people that (1) there is only a card in that envelope, (2) it does not require special handling, and (3) that they should not charge him $2.98 to mail it. He looses a lot when I get carried away with my layers so I try to stay under the Post Office radar - it is tough but I do it. I have 5 layers on this card but I didn't pop up any of them so it may stay under $2 for postage - lol!
This week's DRS Designs Challenge is all about layers.
I started with white paper and stamped on the DRS Designs Hayrides Harvest Greeting (such a fun Thanksgiving Greeting) and the Winter Trees stamp. I did two layers of paper and I sponged them using a mask for my scene (the inks are all TH Distress inks). Then I stamped some Open Leaf images and sponged them with the same inks (minus blue). In my head this was going to be a late Fall day but the blues were a bit dark so it is a Thanksgiving night scene. I ended up with a river in the scene because I got a blue finger print in the middle of my ground scene. I think this would be pretty done as a snowy scene too - maybe using a Christmas sentiment and snowflakes.
Hope will have some time to join us in the challenge.
