DYSU Challenge # 10 - Layers

Well, we had another great challenge over at Do You Stack Up last week and loads of lovely entries. Congrats all you winners - enjoy your prizes and welcome our second Guest Designer! For this week's challenge the theme is LAYERS - so come on, get out all those papers, card, flowers etc. and layer them up on your project!!

Our generous sponsors this week are:

Lili of the Valley who are giving a lucky winner a £10 voucher

and Limited Runs Digis who are giving the other lucky winner 3 digis.

For my card this week I have used a cute dragonfly image from Limited Runs Digis. The backing papers are all digis I have on my computer so cannot tell you where they are from I'm afraid. I printed the wings onto an oil on water card that I bought some years ago, to get that rainbow effect that dragonfly wings seem to have.  I think this worked quite well. The body has been paper pieced. The fancy border, swirl and leaves are Magnolia Doohickeys and the circle is a Spellbinders die. The flowers were cut on the Cricut.

To complete the image, I have added Glossy Accents to the eyes - you can just about see a shine in the above picture!!

And this is the inside of the card.

Now don't forget to take a look at  DYSU and leave some love for the other DT members, whose projects are lovely and then join in this week's challenge.  Look forward to seeing your entries.

I am entering this card into the challenge at Paper Sundaes - #59 Stripes
