One Layer Fun

Good Monday morning all! I hope everyone had a good relaxing weekend. I managed to get most of our deck powerwashed so I can put DD's hard plastic pool out there for the summer. I'll have to finish that up tonight. Well TGF has issued another challenge that I have not done before. The first was a black and white only challenge. This one was a one layer challenge. That means nothing but a piece of cardstock folded. Oh my word! No layers! The Challenge can be found on TGF blog. Well I'm always up for a challenge so I decided to try to create a frame with my scorepal. I then masked the inner frame off and stamped the flowers from TGF Hope & Grace set around the edges. I then stamped the little cutie in the center also from the same set. I colored all the images and the background with copics(I'll have to update which ones later) and then used my white gel pen to add dots to the background. Just to keep with the one layer theme the only embellishment I added was a little bow.

Awesome, Mary! It doesn't look like one layer at all! Your copic skills are smokin', girl!! I want to learn how to use those someday. I still can't believe this is only one layer!! GREAT job!!
