New Try it on Tuesday Challenge

Hi All. Nice to have you drop by today and thank you as always for your welcome visit.

Today is the start of another new challenge at Try it on Tuesday so I hope you will join us there for a 'Layer it Up Challenge'. First thing to do is to visit TIOT to see what the rest of the team have made and also to check on our rules to be sure you are following them.

I made a large Christmas card. I always find layers difficult and admire anyone who does this style with ease.

I think there are about 10 layers here. The papers my daughter gave to me from a pack she had bought but I don't know the name. The frame I made and the fancy leaf die cut is by Joy. The bird die cut and the cage was in a swap with a friend last year. The poinsettas I printed out in Paint Shop Pro and then painted them with Siegal Lech that makes paper like plastic. All of the layers were arranged onto Red Card.

Can't wait to see what you make and I hope you call at TIOT  next Tuesday as well to see who was chosen as our Top 5 from the last Challenge

Love Chrissie xx

I find layers difficult too. I tend to use sketches for those, otherwise I spend hours moving pieces of cards around! I think you managed very well, your card looks lovely and there are many beautiful and interesting details.
