Layering Attempts!

I am back with another card! I had mentioned just a few days earlier, in one of my posts, that I find layering difficult, and that I wanted to make a few more attempts at it. One of the commenters, Shannon, told me think ofย  ‘Layers as friends’ – that kinda stuck! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am making another attempt here at layering –

Layering Attempt #2Looks pretty simple to make doesn’t it? ๐Ÿ˜› Thankfully, this time, all the elements I picked fit just right right from the first time, so I was saved. Otherwise, I usually end up spending hours, just looking for things that match (now, you know the secret behind my fear of layers! :P)!

Layering Attempt #2 (close up)For this card, I used Petals & Stems by Avery Elle and stamped the flowers and leaves using Memento Bamboo Leaves, Memento Grape Jelly and Hero Arts Neon Blue. I fuzzy cut the flowers and a couple of the leaves for adding dimension. I cut the circle using Quickutz Nesting Circles by W R Memory Keepers and stamped my flowers and leaves before adding the fuzzy cuts. I also added the dashed line using a Copic Multi-liner, plus simple silver glitter in the flower centers. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in Memento Grape Jelly. The pattern papers are from the same set – Halloween & Fall stack by DCWV.

Submitting this card to Colour Me Challenge #76 and Retro Sketches #168. I must say, having a sketch as a reference really helped me – otherwise I would be all over the place trying to get a good layout! ๐Ÿ˜‰
