Summer scene

The theme at AiFactory Challenges this week is Layer It Up.So we’dlove to see your creations with lots of layers. You have until 11:59EST on Wednesday July 27th to upload your project using the link below. You do not have to use an AIF image but we would love it if you did and you get an extra entry. You can find some great images in the store here. Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous work while you’re there.

I’ve used some of the images from My First Rainbow Digital Stamps Collection  from AiFactory. I chose to make a Stair Step Fold to create a little scene using these fabulous papers as a starting point.All the images have been paper pieced and in fact the only colouring is on her eyes.I used a fineliner pen and a white gel pen to give her a twinkle in her eyes.Rather than cut out the individual bands on the rainbow I actually layered it up cutting  away the bottom bands to reveal the colour underneath.I finished the card with some pretty ribbon I found in my stash.

A revelation?!
Whilst making this card to make sure I got the colours of the rainbow in the correct order I scribbled down the first letters of the well known saying Richard Of York Gave Battle In Vain :

I also happened to have a recently purchased Core’dinations Cardstock pad to hand.I always wondered why it was called Roy G.Biv.A strange name I thought.Could it be the designers moniker?Hee hee – after writing these letters out the penny finally dropped!!So if you have this pad or have just pondered over the title now you know!

    Your stair step card is a perfect way to have layers. Love all the paper piecing you’ve done too and all the bright, fun colors.

    Fab creation Lisa. As for the Roy G Biv pad, I can remember commenting to a retailer that it was a really odd name, and he informed me that it was the colours of the rainbow. Boy did I blush with my stupidity!

    Thanks for joining in with our Summer theme at Dream Valley.
