Kim Wilson's Technique Class idea: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...read.php?t=374 Started my third year of these classes in August. This year I will do one or sometimes two techniques per month (3 projects total) and I will probably include more directions for 3d items or special card folds. I think I have about 15 colors left to use for their reference rings.
In August we did this Botloads of Love card in Paper Tole. You could also do something much more simple such as the butterfly from Garden Whimsy. Don't be afraid to teach this technique. My ladies all groaned a little at first, but loved their results and said it was totally worth the effort - realizing they never would have tried this on their own. I asked everyone to bring their own scissors and if possible a set of aquapainters. The watercolored images with re-inker which was also new to a lot of them. Do be aware though if you do a card like this it takes some time. Half of the group worked ont his while the other half completed the other 2 projects (Jenn box and Garden Whimsy card) we did that night (and then they switched).
I had previously uploaded this card, but I wanted to get into The SUB with the tech reference card.
Text of the reference card reads:
Stamp and color an image or scene. Then stamp and color 2 or 3 more of the same image(s) and cut them out with small sharp tipped scissors or a hobby blade. You may want to cut out the entire image or just pieces of the image. You will then layer the cut pieces using foam tape, hot glue or silicon glue. To create even more dimension you can curve or curl pieces by pressing into the palm of your hand or by using the edge of a spoon or a paintbrush handle. The idea is to build up the image so that the parts that would be closest to you have the most layers and those farthest away or in the background have the least or no layers. The curling method is especially nice with flower images.
Simple Tole: One duplicate image (such as a butterfly or flower) is cut out and adhered with foam tape over the same image in the stamped design to create dimension.
