One layer TGF card

So The Greeting Farm is hosting a challenge - to create a card using just one layer. No matting, no extra paper....yeah not as easy as it sounds!

I thought I had a good idea yesterday but after three hours, I threw what I was working on in the "round file". I thought about it and thougth about it and finally came up with an idea and I am pretty happy with the results:



All one layer baby! I cut the card using a large Nestability (sorry I don't recall the name of this one - it's one of the newer dies) and then stamped the summer Anya on the card front. I masked her and then sponged ink to create the sun, sand and sea. I then highlighted portions of each and colored Miss Anya with Copics. I kept the embellishments to a minimum, adding a few sparkles to her skirt and a little shimmery pen to her glasses.

Definitely a challenge this time!

Have a creative Wednesday - and be sure to scroll down for my earlier post from today -

That doesn't look at all like a one layer card, you did a great job of adding dimension.
