Snakes in the Snow

     We're starting a new challenge today and we have a really simple theme: "Lots of Layers."  I think this is one of the funniest images I've ever seen at QKR Stampede!    (Digi 12602 "Happy Snake")  The sentiment is my own this time.

     The image is colored with ProMarkers and die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I used two layers of burlap as mats for the image because it gives such great texture.  Besides, the burlap is new and it was right there on my desk, waiting to be put away, so why not use it?  :-D  Those mats are die cut with the same set of dies.  I also matted the sentiment with burlap.  Behind the matted image, I used torn CS and behind that a layer of dark brown CS.

     For embellishments, I added a strip of ribbon (brand new from Really Reasonable Ribbon) at the top of the card and then added one of the handsewn bows I make by the dozens and keep in my stash for future use.  This one was made with white ribbon, dyed with marker to get the exact color I wanted.

     Come play in our Layers challenge this week, won't you?  We'd love to see what you create.  Remember, you can use any image by any company, but if you do use a QKR Stampede image, your project is entered into a separate drawing just for QKR users.  That increases your chance of winning significantly.   Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
