One Layer Time...

One Layer Challenges are all over this month! Susan's One Layer Wednesday Challenge is to use repetition and A muse just posted their monthly challenge in the Lounge called "Taking off some layers"

As a result, I have a series of OLCs that I will be posting over the next week or so...I can't stop making them! Here is my card for Susan's challenge. I apologize for the slightly out of focus picture, I think the madeira paper in the background was messing up my camera somehow!!



Supplies:

Paper: A muse
Ink: Palette hybrid noir
Stamps: A muse (ladybird, hello)
Accessories: copics, black ribbon (unknown source), paper piercer, corner chomper


A muse has a wonderful selection of tiny stamps - this ladybug is one of my growing collection of these. I absolutely love the font of this sentiment...I have been using this stamp over and over since I got it - you may recognize it from last week's challenge! I think the font matches perfectly with the ladybugs' antennae this time...

I used a circle nestibility die to trace the circle, used my SAMJ to align the ladybugs around the inside of the circle, added my sentiment in the middle and pierced around the outer edge of the circle. I added the ribbon/bow and chomped off a few corners to soften the card. Hope you can find some time and some little stamps to join in on the challenge!!

How very clever to make a telephone dial! Wish I had thought of that.
You did such a good job of getting all the bugs in the right spots. That kind of precision entirely escapes me.

Thanks for posting.

Wow, those lady bugs are placed PERFECTLY in such a wonderful design!!!!!! Did you do the piercing first? What a clever use of those tiny stamps, too. Bravo!
