SDC : Lots of Layers

It's time for this week's Stampotique Designer's Challenge!  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
If you have not joined our September New Release Blog Hop you still have a week to join for a chance to win some new release goodies!  Welcome to our September guest designer, you may recognize her as one of the Stampotique stamp artists, Maryse Carrier. We are thrilled to have her be a part of our team this month!

Here's my little layered ATC... I WISH I were in Paris!  The front is layered with various stamps in various colors of inks.  The background (see below) was made by layering 6 different distress inks onto a cardstock that I didn't really fancy (top part) to turn it into something I quite like for a background (bottom part)!  Once it was used as the bottom layer of the ATC, it was even hard to tell that it was patterned paper.  So grab a sheet of paper that needs a makeover and "have at 'er" as we say here in the Maritimes! LOL! :)
Stamps by Stampotique Originals:
Eiffel Tower, Bushes,  Sun Design, Wish Word

  1. A great ATC, Valerie! You can't get more French that "the" tower, and you have used it whimsically here! You have lots of layers, yet your image commands center stage! Beautifully so!

  2. I have many neglected sheets of patterned paper that may get the 'Val Technique'! Love this ATC xx

  3. to get so much layers on an atc is not an easy job! but you sure rocked it :)))

    ps: love the quote about the ego ;)

  4. Wonderful Val, love what you did with the sunbeams

  5. Love this Valerie, and I have so many papers that are crying out to be madeover! xx

  6. Esta me gustó mucho, Valerie :)
