Well if this wasn't a difficult challenge I don't know what is .. I made a complete boo boo I did not read the challenge correctly and my first card was not ONE LAYER so I went back to the drawing board!
The challenge this week was one layer with the theme of HOUSES! This is my second attempt:
I kept it simple, but I wish my sentiment didn't look crooked as it took me so long to line it up on the block and get it straight :( in real life it isn't I used a Stampin Up set that was not available in the UK called unchartered territory it has a light house, sentiment and a boat image. I added some extra birds from the Up, up and away set. I kept the colouring simple only adding dashes of colour with baja breeze, cherry cobbler, old olive. The image looked like it needed something else so I added some shading with sahara sand which made it look a lot better. The clouds you cant really see in the picture but there are some subtle clouds in the background.
Now this was the first card that I made that was not one layer .. I really should read the challenge before I whip up to the craft room
This is a very old SAB set from Stampin Up which had several houses, trees, clouds and the roofs for the houses. This is the only stamping set that I own that has houses! The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink - I used the colours soft suede, old olive and cherry cobbler with some baja breeze and dazzling details for the clouds and added some lucky limeade bakers twine.
