I just saw where a gal on Stamp TV did the tutorial on making fake layers on a card. Thanks to Cat Tidwell for that inspiration. However, I was not as successful at doing it as she was and was about to trash my basic fake layered creation but then decided to try and save it somehow. I did keep the center layer which is fake. And, if you look close you can see the faint outline of the other layers to which I sponged on more colors to make it brighter looking.
Like I said earlier I sponged on more Blue Lagoon and Grass Green inks from Gina K. Designs and then over the top of my fake layers I stamped the leafy branch in black ink. All stamps are from the Birthday Essentials set by Gina K. Designs. The last step was to stamp the butterfly in black ink onto Lipstick Pink card stock and then die cut them. They were then placed on each corner. So except for the addition of the butterflies which I glued on it is just a one layer card. I used blue card stock for the card base.
This was "just a for fun" design and I don't intend to enter it into any competition. And, this will do it for me this week. I won't be available tomorrow as I will have other plans to keep me busy. I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for the comments and visits.
