Hi everyone. Today's card was really fun to make and used a new-to-me technique as well as a technique I haven't used for some years. The new-to-me technique was Inked Die Cuts for the Just Us Girls Challenge. The technique I haven't used for years was 3D paper piecing (aka paper tole) for Friday Mashup. I combined these two challenges with the sketch from Deconstructed Sketches and the colors from Just Add Ink.
I stamped my hedgehog onto Express-it cardstock four times. I colored the base image, then on the other three images I colored the gift box, the gift bow and the hedgehog's hands and feet. I cut out the colored pieces and glued them to my base image using glue dots to give some dimension. Here's a close-up of hedgie:
And a side view so you can see the different levels:
The hedgehog was cut using the Inked Die Cut technique and some Colorbox Warm Red chalk ink. The smaller circle was stamped and the die inked with Aquamarine chalk ink before being cut.
Thanks for looking.
