Technique Monday

After a busy weekend at the dance competition, doing laundry, cooking, cleaning and stamping a challenge card here and there. It is finally Monday, and everyone is out of the house and I can get my cards posted.

Today's challenge technique is paper tole... where the same image is stacked to provide dimension to the key features. The catch with today's challenge is NO FLOWERS allowed. Stamp the main image 3 times and cut out detail areas and use dimensional adhesive to pop up.

I took the bashful blue ink pad and rubbed it over the paper to create a washed-looking background, I then stamped the entire image onto the paper. I stamped the images two more times on scrap white paper and colored all the images in using SU! markers (Going Gray (tires), Mellow Moss (truck), Brocade Blue, Regal Rose, So Saffron). I cut out one entire image and mounted it with dimensional adhesive on top of the first stamped image, then cut out several features from the 3rdstamped image to add extra dimension. I chose the fender, the window, the lady, and 3 of the gifts. This was so much fun, I love to cut and this was my stamping therapy for the day!
