Tiddy Inks Simplify Challenge

Happy Thursday bloggers...It's such a pretty one here, but I do believe we are expecting some rain sometime today. We could use it though......anywhoooo, I would love to share a card I had made for Tiddy Inks Simplify challenge....make a one layer card...anyone who knows me, knows I just can't do one layer cards..I need "STUFF"...the more the better...*smile*...so this is my attempt at making a one layer card....ENJOY!!!!
Images I used were bathing beauty-- going swimming-- going swimming boy-- light my life--harmony border-- hoppy sleepy wishes (sentiment)-- cloudy with a chance of sun...the ones without links I think were freebies...I can't seem to find them in the store....
*********************
I wanted to try and make a 3-D look with a 2D feel...I used Microsoft Word to create my scene using all of the images. I started using the harmony border as a photo frame (kind of sorts)...I added an oval frame making the black outline at 3" to give it a frame...added the rest of the images inside and colored everything in using my Prisma pencils...I cut the image out and made a shaped card by just wet gluing the top tabs to back of card......it's alittle wonky, and the oval is off center, but I do love how it turned out for being a flat card.....
just a front view.....
here's the inside....I used StampScapes for the tiki huts and quote from Sweet Pea Stamps (plate 101)...MS border punch along with a EK circle punch for bottom corners.... just a side view.... *************************** Well I hope if you get a chance, and really want a challenge, this one's for you...stop on over and see what the team has created for this challenge...they totally knocked it out of the park (as they always do)....thanks girls for a great one this week...... ************ I hope everyone has a wonderful and sunny day.....Hugs from Charm City...
