Krafty Girls Challenge #128

This is my second post of the day. Please click here or scroll down to see my post for Sparkle Creations May Release Day. Thanks! =)

Happy weekend, my friends! Here is a card for this week's challenge over at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Challenge Blog.

This week's host is Yours Truly and the challenge is "One Layered Card," or keep it as few layers as possible since it's a little difficult to do single layer cards with images that needs coloring. =)

I used the beautiful Calliope for my card. She and her buddy Mr. Tako (tako is octopus in Japanese) and star fish are stamped on PTI's Rustic Cream cardstock then colored with Copic markers.

Some Star Dust Stickles was applied to Calliope's tail and I added Glossy Accents to all the water bubbles. Those are really quick and simple ways to add pizzazz to your single layer projects. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink

For this week's Frugal Friday Specials, Mae, Caroline, Stanley the Snail, In Stitches, Canine Capers 2 and Sarah Shopper have been put on sale for 40-50% off. Don't forget to check them out!

That's all I have. Please go and check out the amazing cards that my teammates came up for this challenge and the challenge details here. Hope you can join us this week! =)

You did good. I had to sit this challenge out. It was giving me an ulcer. I think I am incapable to create a one layer card.
