This month we have lots of celebrations including my anniversary. I made this card which was a huge labour of love.
I am entering this into the Digi Darla Challenge Blog who happens to be sponsored (by another of my favourite digital stamp artists) Bugaboo!
I recently saw on the web a card maker who does beautiful work. I was stunned to see how her digital images came to life. Her secret? She layers them. So I followed her tutorial and tried my hand at it.
Can I just tell you..the women is nuts! Seriously. It took me a whole afternoon just to paper piece my digi (from Bugaboo Stamps) and she does this for every card. Perhaps I was a little too ambitious using such a detailed image, I don't know. Would I do it again? Yep, but not for just anyone. I LOVE the way this looks. It brings such depth to a card. Apparently had I followed the tutorial correctly and used my stylist to pop out each layer it would have been even more 3D. To be honest, after a few hours I just wanted to glue the sucker down and make a card. maybe next time-lol.
Here is my card:
The patterned paper is from Basic Grey. I layered a ribbon over it and a lace under it. I cut out my image and popped it up with dimensionals. The crochet flower was added with a letter charm.
Hopefully you can see all the layers in there-lol
Thanks for stopping by. If I can retrace my steps and find the women's blog, I'll post it. Her talent is incredible!
