Hello my friends! I'm back! Thank you so much to all the ladies that have taken a turn playing guest host the last several months!
Today's technique is paper tole...the kind where the same image is stacked to provide dimension to the key features. We have done something similar before. The catch with today's challenge is that NO FLOWERS allowed. (unless of course you truly do not own ANY stamp that is not a flower!).
It is hard to see the layers in the pictures, but in the close-up, you can see how the cat has been cut out and adhered with a pop-dot, and on top of that layer is a cut out of the drink and that has been adhered with a pop-dot. Ditto with the trees: the entire tree is layered, and then the leaves are layered on top of that.
So you need to stamp the image 3 times. Cut out the features you want to highlight and adhere with a pop-dot. It's really easy, just requires patience and good cutting skills (and more patience!)
This looks really fun. I love the dimension!! One of my favorite things to do is cut paper ... quite oddly it brings me peace of mind (serenity stamper ... Hope I have time to do it. Good luck to those that accept the challenge -- I always love to admire the great works you guys do! Lela
Location: My very hot stamp room, in Phoenix! It's a dry heat.
I think this was a real challenge Beth. I learned a few things and may have to try it again sometime. It certainly does take patience, and that is not one of my strengths. lol Please take a look and let me know what you think. Layered Tree
Well Beth, you've really made me work hard for this one!!! I went to my stash of stamps and lo & behold, all the ones that would be "perfect" for this challenge were flower stamps. Then I remembered that I had this set which I purchased only recently as it is retiring from our current catty today - and I hadn't used it yet!!!! Woooo Hooooo - a virgin stamp set - gotta love it!!!! So, here it is:
Hi, everyone! Welcome back, Beth! Fantastic challenge, and perfect for the card I wanted to make today!!!!
