I am so excited to be the Guest Designer at
for the month of May.
Here's the challenge for this month.
Loll (Stamping with Loll)
who is the leader of this challenge, has posted a video
to show how to get dimension from your die cuts.
Be sure to check it out.
What a difference the sponging and shaping make!
I used 2 dies and a punch for this card.
The die is by Penny Black
and the punch is Stampin' Up!
I cut the iris and sponged it, then used an Aqua Painter to spread the colors.
Using Loll's technique, I "curled" the petals
with a burnishing tool.
Adhering the iris with tiny pieces of dimensionals added even more depth to the card.
I love the dimension. IRL it looks like the iris is growing out of the card!
