Week 80 - One Layer

What wonderful blues and greens we saw last week, but now it's time for your very favourite 
ONE LAYER CARD
and this time the subject of your creations should feature
FUR or FEATHERS
(This should give you plenty of scope.)
As ever, please don't forget that white space and keep any embellishments to a minimum.
Here are our examples, but please don't forget to visit our personal blogs, as very often you can see extra examples for each challenge there.

Don't you just love these chickens?
The image is from Penny Black, simply coloured with Copics and the sentiment is from Personal Impressions.
A similar layout to the first card, but this cuddly bear is from Indigo Blu, masked and over-stamped with the background stamp from Great Impressions with a sentiment from Hero Arts.

Here is a stamp from Unity, stamped twice without re-inking, on a masked oval, inked with SU Almost Amethyst and Bashful Blue inks. There's just a little interest added to the background with a splat stamp from SU's French Foliage stamp set. Once more the sentiment is from Hero Arts.

It's amazing that with all the thousands of stamp designs, Chrissie and I have, for the following week, used the same stamp! We don't find out until we set the posts!
 I stamped Indigo Blu 'ted' in Stampin Up Soft Suede, then the CTMH 'Hi' in Calypso Coral as is the little bow on teddys ear!

/or maybe fur AND feathers!!
 This stamp is a newer acquisition for me I LOVE it. It is Stampotique 'Under the Parapluie'
I stamped centrally with Versafine Onyx I'm not too sure if this stamp is meant as a 'rainy' scene or a sunny one, but, it said sunny to me! I masked part of the stamped design and inked a sun through a circle with Distress Ink Mustard Seed,  I then gently water coloured the image in 'quirky' colours. I know I freaked a few of you with my blue cat, so scroll down quickly....


My last card is 'me' I LOVE flamingos. I inked random circles with Distrsss Inks
Dusty Concord, Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade
The sentiment is computer generated. The flamingo make escapes me as it;s a clear stamp and I have mounted it onto wood, hence no name. Gems and glitter to finish!

  7. Thanks for visiting me and honestly - no offence taken! I am learning about the challenge criteria! The pattern at the top of the card is not a doily - the doily was used as a stencil and inked through to leave the pattern. There are no other layers apart from the card itself and the embellishments which are probably a bit ott. Thanks for the feedback - I will get it right next time lol! jenx

  9. Lovely challenge, if I have enough time before I go away again I might enter more than once. But first a quick question. If I stamp directly on to my card than heat emboss it, does that still count as one layer?

  12. Beautiful creations! The flamingo of the last example might be from a Stampabilies set called Botanicals & Birds ;) I know, because I would love to have that flamingo too, but I haven't found it.
