#10 One layer only

Hello and  a warm welcome to the next challenge.
Please stay and flutter for a while.
Winners results are in the post below.

I have added a new feature to the challenge page.
A Prize Gallery Tab
So if you are a winner
you may  send in  a picture
showing what you've made using your prize.
Shaz in Oz has submitted a card
with the butterfly template she chose from #6
You can find it on the tab above.
The 10th challenge is
One layer only + your butterfly 
No extra  embellishments  to be added just use your blank project/card.
You are free to use stamping , EF folders , Embossing powders
to name just  a few which will give a one layer effect.
I have made some items  which will hopefully
give you some inspiration.
I have used a cream sheet of A4 paper folded for the card.
This gives me the one layer.
Embossed with one of 'Spellbinders'  new 3D folders.
The butterfly and sentiment  have been
  stamped directly onto the card.
Coloured with inks and marker pens.
This time I have used a pre cut patterend card blank.
I coloured the stamps prior to stamping direct to the card.
One layer but with lots of interest.

And finally
  How about this for a One Layer!

A large flat pebble painted, then stamped and coloured.
A  perfect paperweight.

The winner may select one item from the following prizes in the pot.
K & Company Pillow Stickers.

Butterfly clear stamp.

Kanban  Butterfly topper sheet.

Please be sure to read the rules on the tab
above and enter your creations
in Mr Linky below.

Happy Crafting

Hi Mrs A,
wonderful challenge creations.
I was really stumped for this theme challenge.
Nothing came to mind.
Not at all happy with my entry.
Better an entry that I don't like than miss a challenge like the last one.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Lynne K said...

Hmm. One layer isn't as easy as it sounds! Great challenge, though, and all the samples are brilliant.


Heidi Weaver said...

What a great challenge, to create a one-layer butterfly card. Loved it!

Karen P said...

Another fabulous challenge Mrs A - thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to be back again! Karen x

Mary said...

You have done it again. Your creations are lovely as always and your challenge....challenging! I'm sooooo happy that today I found time to play. I'm doing it this week just for please don't include me in the draw. My inside isn't one layer, so I don't think I qualify this week. Good luck to the others!

brenda said...

Great inspiration and thanks for the theme, one of my favs, just hope the butterfly is not too insignificant.

I'm so glad I ran across this challenge. I've bought a bunch of new butterfly stamps recently and this is yet another incentive to use them! Thanks for the inspiring DT designs!
