One last My Favorite Things Challenge

So, I have been working on this card for the last couple of days. A little here and a little there. It wasn't that the card was difficult, it was that I just didn't have a lot of bulk time to work on it. This challenge is called a paper tole technique and I think I did it right, but it appears to have some slight variations when I was looking it up. I would love to try something like this with the right stamp.

The way I did it was: I stamped my image 3 times, colored them all (copics) and then cut out the pieces that I wanted to pop dot. So, the boots have one extra layer pop dotted on
top of the original image, the dress is pop dotted twice over the original image and the umbrella is pop dotted 3 times but without the original image because I wasn't sure where I was going to place the umbrella until I was done. I also embossed the umbrella for a cool shiny affect. I really like how it turned out.

No sentiment for the card yet just because I don't know what I want to use it for yet, but it will be easy to place on there at some point.

Try this technique if you haven't yet. It was a lot of fun to do and creates a really cool looking card.

Thanks for stopping.

I love the whole 3D effect and I think it looks awesome!! I would love to try it out sometime, but I think I'm a little too impatient to cut around all my stamped images...LOL...one of these days...

Or I'll just come here and live vicariously through your work!
