One Layer Cards at Crafting By Designs

I am delighted to be involved with this challenge blog! I have been with Crafting By Designs for well over a year now and continue to be challenged and inspired. This week is no exception. The theme is 'One Layer Cards' and this is something very alien to me! I like my layers and some embellishing and a bit of glitter etc so I knew this would be tricky. We have a fabulous sponsor though - Rosey Hearts.
I started out with my image - The Creeps Bunz Outline - and placed him on a 6x6 new panel on Photoshop. I found a sentiment I like from Create with TLC and placed that too beside him on the panel and when I was happy I played around with the settings on both photoshop and my printer setup with lots of blank paper till I worked out exactly how to print it directly onto a 6x6 card blank. So, about 40 minutes after I started I had a card to colour! I am sure there are easier ways, but now that I know it, I will know for next time.
I coloured him with Promarkers and a black Derwent Coloursoft pencil. My only issue being that I did not use the same card for my blank as I usually do for colouring so the paper and pens did not react the same way - something I will need to keep in mind. All in all though, I am very happy with my One Layer, CAS card.
