OLW 39 Challenge

I struggled a bit with this week's One Layer Wednesday Challenge. The requirements are to use a border stamp, an image, some bling and no sentiment.

I chose the the monkey image first then couldn't find a border stamp to match. My solution was to create one myself with a single leaf and using masking to give a continuous line.

I coloured using Promarkers but had a wobble when I couldn't see where to fit the "bling" ( an unusual problem for me!!) I added the butterfly purely so that I could use some acrylic gems for the body.

Stamps- Stampabilities, lil' Monkey ; butterfly - Dawn Bibby Designs.

Love the way you created your own border with the single leaf. Great card!

I think this is a really fun card. I like how you've made your own border and I think the butterfly is perfect!

Janelle said...

Love how you created the leafy border. Such a cute, cute card! (And, I totally agree that you needed the butterfly... where else the bling?) :)

The leaf border really makes this card and was well worth the effort! (BTW, my maiden name is Mac Kenzie.)
