Wplus9 Birthday Week 2 – Step It Up Challenge

Slowly working my way back into life now.  😉  I’m here today with a card for the Wplus9 Birthday Week 2 challenge, which is to ‘Step It Up’ by adding dimension.

Here is how I add dimension, I guess:


I colored a lovely image from Very Vintage Greetings with my Prismacolor pencils, trying to shade a little for some dimension there.  I also sponged the oval mat behind it, layering both of those with foam tape over the ornate oval for more depth.  I cut the banner twice, cutting off the ends on the top one, layering it over the other with foam tape.  I suppose the pearls give a little dimension, as well.


So there you have it.  Thanks for stopping by today. 😉

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Heartfelt Mix, Very Vintage Greetings (Wplus9)
Paper/Cardstock:  White Cardstock (Xpedx); Soft Stone Cardstock (PTI)
Inks:  Tuxedo Black (Memento); Smoky Slate (SU!); Spring Moss (PTI)
Embellishments:  Pearls (Recollections); Prismacolor Pencils; Sparkle Glitter Spray (Tsukineko)
Tools:  Banner Trio Dies (Wplus9); Oval Dies (Spellbinders); Chevron Cover Plate (PTI)
