Layers and lots of luck!!

Hello and welcome to you this showery Sunday afternoon :D Lovely to see you!!
Over at the Stampotique Challenge this week it is all about Layers!!!!

Sue Davies is our hostess this week for our next challenge and here is what she says about her challenge:

I love to use layers on my projects, be it layers of paint and inks or layers of card, or both. I challenge you to use at least three layers on your creation. Have fun xx

This little cutie made it onto my tag ......

And this little one is there too

 Over at the Stampotique Challenge Blog I recently won the $30 gift certificate, WOOPHHEEE :D And here I've used two of my chosen stamps. Thank you so much Stampotique, my stamps are brilliant! How lucky was I ?? VERY!
My tag has FIVE layers in places, Black large tag, 3 layers of bright green vellum and Ghostie & friends! I absolutely love layers of vellum, the torn edges show how beautiful this luxurious paper is. Getting the right amount of layers and density took a while, I've been playing with this one for a few days!
I used
Ghostie, You Don't Say, 
Concentric Squares Border

Just a little loft update :D The work continues, (we're not fast :D )
This is what we found in the darkest reaches
It was almost invisible from inside the loft! No wonder my son was complaining about the wasps for the past few years! I think this one has been there for at least 2/3 years, little stinkers!! Clever construction though!
Thanks for stopping by, hugs Gay x

Lovely your ghostly tag Gay.....congrats on your win..
Wow that's some wasp nest...we've had several over the years nasty little blighters



Ooooh, that wasps nest would have freaked me out Gay - clever little devils!
On the other hand, your card is fab. (I said you were good at choosing interesting stamps)! Love the torn vellum layers and the sentiment. - great fun!

What a truy fest to win such a price! Like the tag you made! The nest looks so clever and beautiful, but they clearly don´t belong in a house... Have a fun and creative week, Gerrina

Gay, your layered tag is divine in every way!! And holy crap about the wasp hives! Hopefully they won't come back next year, but now you'll know where to keep a watch for them in the future. Hope the work goes smoothly! Hugs, Darnell

I love the image, it's so right for the sentiment, love the tag.

We had a huge wasp nest years ago, thankfully in the garden, but hubby had a couple of stings before smoking them out. There must have been quite a noise with them in the loft.

Patricia said...

Good evening Gay,
"Wasp Bike" must a Scottish name for a Wasp Nest.
Sorry for the confusion
Have a good evening
