Two weeks ago, Jana challenged the Prettie Girls to a very specific challenge. I think I got everything, but I'm afraid I don't like the end result very much. Oh well, you can't love everything you make, right? Jana's challenge was to create a card or scrapbook page using the following items:
-1 dry embossed piece (embossing folders and texture plates count!)
-2 pieces of patterned paper
-3 colors of solid cardstock (this includes any neutrals you use)
Within these parameters she gave the following qualifications: the dry embossed piece must be one of your patterned papers or your 3 colors. At no point should there be more than 4 layers under a top piece of cardstock. However, if you have your base card with a second layer on that...you may have multiple small pieces each with 2 layers under them. You may use as many tools as you like.
As I said, I think I got everything. . .my dry embossed piece, 2 pieces of patterned paper from the DCWV Far East Stack, 3 colors of cardstock (Riding Hood Red, Wild Wasabi and Brown), 4 embellishments (hemp, brads/gemstone for the dragon eye, paper piercing, gold glitter glue) and 5 layers (well, I have at least 5 anyway).
I'm thinking this card just isn't my normal style, so that's probably why I'm not so fond of it. I'm not the layering type either, so thinking about the layers so much had me stumped! LOL Be sure and check out what the other Prettie Girls came up with for this challenge as many of them are "Layer Queens Extraordinaire", so I'm sure their cards are just fabulous!! :)
