Embellies with a Twist at TCC - Layers

This week's challenge at The Crafter's Cafe is to make a card with layers and of course include embellishments.  We would love you to take part and join us with this challenge.  Remember that you do need to register and become a new member of the forum if you wish to take part.  I forgot to log in first last week and so my card appeared as a guest.  I will remember from now on.

I often like to include layers, so I had lots of fun with this challenge.  Here is the card I created, using purples, one of the colours I really like to use in my cards.


To create the background I stamped the flower in black ink onto the purple card (Thanks Dawn for sharing this technique of creating your own background).  I embossed the lilac card and cut a panel and adhered it to the purple card and added the ribbon.  I printed my image, coloured it with copics, added the Hello sentiment.  I then matted it onto the dark pink card to match the main colour of the card.  Lastly I added the kindy glitz.

  1. Angela this is a stunning card - love all the elements and they have come together beautifully.

  2. A wonderful card Angela. I saw it over on Flickr yesterday and was suitable impressed with all your layers... and of course it's my favourite Purple colourings so really caught my eye. Hope it play this week, missed last weeks.
