New Winter Wonderland Challenge

Hi everyone,
 
Hope you are all keeping warm, here in the UK. Blimmin' freezing today!!
 
Thanks to all of you that joined in our last Winter Wonderland challenge.
Well done to the winners.
 
We now have another challenge for you, from today for 2 weeks.
 
The theme is
Lots Of Layers.
 
I know, here at Winter Wonderland, our challenges are usually Christmas cards
 but for a few more weeks, any season is welcome.
 
We have 2 great Sponsors for this challenge.
 
Firstly, the amazing Kenny K.
The prize is 3 Digis of the winners choice!!
 
 
 
The second Sponsor is Little Claire
and the prize is TBA.
 
 
I chose this Kenny K. image for my card. She is called Clubkid.
 
I love her attitude and her clothes. They caught my eye and thought she would be fun to colour.
 
 It made such a change to use Lots Of Layers, as I am well into CAS style at the moment.
I must admit, with CAS, it took me a while to accept in my head, that it was ok
not to have so much stuff on a card.
 
This one is still not quite what I call 'Pizza' cards, with loads of embellies!
Just loads of layers!
 

 
 
I coloured her with my usual Distress Inks.
I only added Stickles to the edges of the backing piece edges and on the flourish die cut.
Also, a few tiny gems in the corners.

 
The burlap is actually green in colour. The 'metal gem' in the middle of the bow,
is actually a plastic button. I cut the shank off the back so it would lay flat.
I bought both the assorted buttons and ribbon, from the craft fair last Saturday,
at Sandown Park Racecourse.
The green paper has embossed bird cages and flowers on and was another purchase.
It is a First Edition paper pad called Bird Song.
My resolve, I am afraid, went straight out of the window, not to buy any more papers!!
But is was the only one I bought!!
 

 
 
All other papers are old and from my stash...... Honest!!!:-D
 
Well, over to you now. Get out all those old papers, or even scraps, that you have not used for ages
and create a masterpiece with lots of layers.
 
For even more inspiration, pop over to the Winter Wonderland blog and have a look
at the stunning cards from my amazing teamies.
 
Good luck and get crafting!!
 
I am teaching a class on Saturday, at The Craft Barn in South Nutfield Surrey.
It's using Wild Rose Studio Stamps and Dies. I forgot to take pictures of my samples. So I must try to remember to take my camera with me!
 
Please take a couple of minutes to leave me a message, so I know you have popped in.
I will, of course return the compliment.
 
Hugs,
 
Carolxxxx
