Pixie Cottage #19...Paper Tole or sketch

Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

This weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge is an interesting one for sure. You have a choice of making a card according to the sketch designed by our very own DT member Pam, or you can Paper Tole your images. I'm sure that some of you are asking yourself "what does Paper Tole mean"? Paper Tole is a fancy word to 3D your image(s), you can either 3D the entire image or parts that you want to stand out.

For this weeks challenge, I only gave dimension to the flower bouquet that my image is holding. This is a new stamp by The Pixie Cottage's new artist Di Carubia and the name is of stamp is Bunny With Roses. I stamped the bouquet portion three times and colored and cut out portions that I wanted for dimension. After that, I simply layered with tiny pop dots and added Stickles for more dimension.

I think that I'm pre-menopausal or something but I know that I feel crappy and I just wish that this feeling would go away!!! At any rate, have a great day everyone and enjoy the sunshine.
