CPS Sketch # 153 - Papertrey Inc. #2

I really loved the CPS Sketch # 153 that I had to create a second card.

Thanks for Everything:

I loved the simple flower and HAD to try a dimensional project.  In fact, as soon as I saw the image, I knew I'd go that route right away.  I used the paper tole technique, stamping multiples of the flower, coloring with copic markers and trimming to separate the petals.  I sprayed with water to allow me to shape the petals (and leaves) and heat set to dry in the shape I wanted.

For once, what I saw in my head translated to paper!  Hah!

I also airbrushed with my Copic Y32/Y38 to give that glow behind the flower.  And everything is layers of dimension.

I hope you'll join us this week at the CPS blog for a chance at a great Papertrey prize pack!
