3-D Challenge (Sort Of)

Our Ocean's 11 group had the first challenge this week. The challenge was issued be Chirleen and the challenge was to make a 3-D card using Spring related colors and sights. I think this is such a cute stamp and it does remind me of spring with the little girl's bare feet and her little crown of flowers. To meet the 3-D criteria, the main image is popped up with foam dots and the flowers were punched out of paper and then I folded the petals inward and they are also popped up a little. I used some pearl dimensional paint on the center of each flower. The stamp is from Sugar Nellie and was colored with Copic and Prisma Markers. I used a white gel pen around the main image and a Fiskars boarder punch to make the scallops. 

I got the bright idea yesterday to sort through all my scrap paper. I had no idea that it would take that long! Since the girls have been spending more time in my craft room making cards, I wanted to pull out some papers for them to use. They each have their own paper stash, but they have been going through it pretty quickly. Now, I have a basket of patterned scraps, a box of solid card stock scraps and a stack of white paper to stamp on. Have a great day!
