Lots of Layers at LEJ Designs

The challenge at LEJ Designs this week is
  Lots of Layers.
 I made quite a straightforward card with several layers of different textures. 
I used the fab Sk8ter Boy image available from
 LEJ Designs
and coloured him with Promarkers, cut out with a 
Sizzix thinlit ticket die. The largest die was actually a bit smaller than I wanted so I cut the card one half at a time to extend to get the exact size! I inked with Dusty Concord Distress Ink. Then added to the layers I selected which are: a base mauve A5 card, with a matte texture, then true black card with smooth texture then Kraft card with a ribbed texture, next a piece of hessian (burlap) and the final layer before the image is Graphic 45 purple Coredinations paper. Some layers were cut and some torn to add texture and interest.  The letters are from Tim Holtz salvage stickers.
We hope you will join in the challenge and bring on your creations with Lots of Layers. 
The first randomly drawn winner wins four digital images from 
  LEJ Designs  
the second winner drawn will crafty goodies.

There is a special prize draw jackpot for entries using an image from LEJ Designs. 
All The Best,
