Sweetpea Coral Immersion Card

So this morning I decided to take on a challenge for myself, what challenge is this you ask?? Well first I must say either I am crazy in attempting this or just in need of a challenge which I certainly got by doing this challenge.  I wanted to make this image pop off the page, make her more realistic looking...you can't really tell what I did by this photo but not to worry I will show you and tell you what I did.

Yep, I am crazy :p!  I did exactly what you think I did!  I stamped out this Sweetpea image 2 times, then I colored in the base image and then colored in the 2 pieces I was going to use to "pop" off the page. I cut out the 2 pieces that I used to "pop" off the base image, but before I attached them I ran the base image through the Cuttlebug using the Decal Oval Nesties. Once I did that I attached the 2 pieces that I wanted to "pop" off the page, and then I built my card up from there which didn't take me that long. I would have to say that the cutting out of the pieces that I wanted to use as the second layer was the hardest and the most time consuming. Can't wait to do this with other Sweetpea images :D!

Inky Hugs,
