Here's Game 1:
It's a goodie, but it did get me thinking about what constitutes a two layer card. So working on the premise that a one layer card is just the card base I eventually came up with this card:
So my second layer was the yellow card that the happy cat is stamped on. I chose these rather bold colours, not at all typical of me, because they are bright and sunny and that to me means happy. I coloured the balloon with promarkers and sparkled it up with stickles. Lastly I added a be happy sentiment just to underline the happy element of the challenge. A simple, clean card that I hope you like.
Stamps: Penny Black, purrfect day; Clearly Besotted, sentiment from Good Times
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black, lady bug
Glitter: Stickles, diamond
My second card was actually the first one I made and then wondered about whether it had more than two layers. I'd be interested to hear your opinion, I think it's probably a bit of a grey area and open to interpretation, but that's what makes life interesting.
I still chose bright happy colours, but this time used a patterned paper. I glittered the edges by applying double sided tape round the outside of the square before sprinkling with loose glitter - makes for a lovely straight line of glitter. The happy sentiment is coloured and glittered too.
Stamp: Whimsy, birthday letter seals
Ink: Memento, tuxedo black
Ppaer: doodlebug, take note
Die: Xcut, spiro circle
Glitter: Deco Art, Glamour Dust; Stickles, star dust
