[DYSU] Challenge #59 - Layers

Hello everyone! I want to wish you all a belated Valentine's Day. Did you spend it with a loved one? Was it fun?

This has been another filled week with lots of post-op doctors visits; but this little worker bee keeps just chugging one step at a time to get through my backlog of work, house chores, and carding deadlines. I'm sure everyone has had a phase like that. But this, too, shall pass!

It's Thursday and it's time for another fun challenge. How do you feel about Layers?

I got to play with one of our sponsor's great digis. Have you heard of Tickled Pink Stamps? If you have, then you know I was in for a great treat! Here is a fun card with lots of layers using Lil Fashionette.

Wonderful You
Stamps: (Lil Fashionette) Tinkled Pink Stamps
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Dark Chocolate) Papertrey Ink; (corrugate card stock) RAK
Ink: -
Embellishments: (Impression Plate - Linen) Papertrey Ink; (Stella & Rose - Mabel "Little Lady" Trims) My Mind's Eye; (Artists' Color Acrylics Series 1 - Light Portrait Pink) Utrecht; (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Brenda Walton Daydreams - Grand Adhesions) K&Company; (Fine Point - Black) Sharpie

I added layers by using a first putting some linen texture down onto brown card stock. The layers then include a nice broad crochet ribbon, fun corrugated magenta card stock (that I received from my dear crafting friend Lisa - more on that later!), added some acrylic paint for "layering" effect, some flower to give it more 3d layers, and a fun little adhesive sentiment that's been popped and matted on.

Wonderful You

If textures and paint counts as a visual layer, then I managed to cram eight whole layers in ;)  Here is Lil Fashionette in her full glory!

Wonderful You

So, there you have it :) Hop over to see some DTs samples and see how they are interpreting Layers this week! And come play along, because prizes are to be had! And you know you can't resist those...
