Hi Everyone - well, did you see the eclipse this morning? Didn't think we were going to down here in Somerset as it was extremely cloudy but a small window appeared eventually where you could see the sun eclipsed by about two thirds. Must admit it didn't get as dark as I thought it would.
Anyway, onto the business in hand. I'm just getting into the new LIM challenge by the skin of my teeth - is that a weird saying or what???? So it's a one layer challenge with the subject of including an animal. Come and see what I made.
I've been wanting an excuse to use this Tim Holtz Crazy Birds set for a while now and this seemed the perfect opportunity. I stamped the bird using Stazon and then watercoloured him using my Akashiya Sai Watercolor Brush Pens which are fabulous to use. If you're interested check out the Kristina Werner YouTube video on them https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4e-Snj8Ul78&feature=em-uploademail. The sentiment is from my Wplus9 Unforgettable stamp set.
Now Chrissie at LIM carried out a survey recently on what one layer meant to everyone and, as a result of that, have changed the guidelines slightly as follows:
On the subject of using inlaid dies, we have decided that it will be acceptable if the whole of the front of the card is simply backed by an inner lining! We deemed this to be much more aesthetically pleasing than a piece of stickytape on the inside of the card to keep the bits from falling out!
As for embellishments... they must be just that... embellishments and not a main feature of the design. They must be small and add to the design and not form the majority of it!
So, how could I not add an embellishment which adds to the design - my googlie eyes! They just seem to make my bird come alive...........
I'm also entering this card into the AAA Cards challenge which is:
