Lots of layers with Creative Knockouts

Hi everyone,

there's a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts.

We'd like to see Lots of layers on your projects. 
We're being sponsored by Crafty Sentiments who very kindly gave me this fab image to play with...

The image is called Little Friends and can be found here.

I've coloured using copics taking the colour scheme to compliment the backing paper which has been in my stash for years. The contrast is a rusty coloured card. I've used some whitewashed coredinations card, which has been embossed and sanded, for one of the layers. The image has been cut out using a Spellbinder Decorative Labels 22 die, inked with tattered rose distress ink whilst still in the die. The two butterfly dies are from Joanna Sheen. I've finished off with some ribbon and some gold pearls. This is a very different colour scheme to my usual cards and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Hope you like it too.

I hope you'll join us for the challenge. You could win a fab prize from Crafty Sentiments but please remember to only link to 8 challenges including ours.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thank you for visiting. Hope I'll see you again soon.
Hugs Helen xx
