The Crafter's Cafe Challenge #200 -Lots of Layers 15/7/18

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge this fortnight is for Lots of Layers and we have 4 great sponsors


Prize - 2 black and white images
 Prize is the same images the team used
Prize is 3 images
For my first project I made a Christmas Card with an image I received from Sheepski , called Gnome for Christmas.

Had a lot of fun layering this card up (not something I do too often)  I corner cut some Kaisercraft paper and used green cardstock from Stampin up for the card base (which I also corner cut at two edges, giving the card an additional layer look with the paper also placed inside the card.

The image has been coloured with copic pens and die cut.  The little gnome has been printed a second time, coloured, fussy cut and layered into place, liquid pearls and Kindy glitz for his beard, hat and boots.  Butterflies from my stash as are the leaves.  The big red flower and additional mushrooms are all from Flourish with a Bling (which sadly have recently closed)

This time I made a mixed media canvas.  Starting with white tissue paper, which I sprayed with a gold ink mist. Brushed Gesso onto the canvas and whilst still wet, scrunched up the tissue onto the canvas.

The image is Autumn Fairy from Cute as a Button, coloured with copic pens and fussy cut, she has been layered onto a doily, glitter added to her wings.  The angel is three layers, bottom layer is the complete image, then a second complete image, this time the wings have been lifted with 3d dimensions to give her wings more dimension, the top layer is the fairy's body and clothing only.

Lots and lots of layers followed.  Some are the little wooden log with the dragon fly attached, white picket wooden fence, the little wooden bird (which I have adhered two together to lift the bird of the canvas)  Lots of diecuts and flowers, butterflies and don't forget the mushrooms, these are my favourite embellishments, sadly Flourish with a Bling has now closed and I will run out of these delightful mushrooms one day.).
