Show Us Your Layers!

No, it has nothing to do with Shrek (who, as a “sensitive” ogre, had as many layers as a typical onion); rather, it’s the newest challenge over at Simon Says.  As always, their design team has come up with some rather fabulous examples – check it out!

I got my entry done at the very last minute due to having to work three 12-hour shifts in a row along with some other time-consuming obligations, so I was very glad they gave us an extra couple of days for this week’s challenge.

I started with black cardstock; layered on a pretty vintage printout, then cut a butterfly chart into an oval and layered it with grungeboard vines and paper flowers.  “Diamond” stickles, little gems and lacy German scrap all add the necessary sparkle.  (This is a fairy theme, after all – ya gotta have sparkle!)  It doesn’t show that well in the photo, but the crown is a silver rub-on.

I know some people have expressed being “sick” of seeing wings and crowns on adorable children, but I love the look and haven’t done too much of it personally, so there she is.  Live with her!  LOL  (Actually, she had fake wings on in the original photo; I cut them off and gave her prettier ones!)
