Lots of Layers is the new challenge for Sugar and Betty...

Hello Again,

Sugar and Betty are no April Fools!  They have set you an awesome challenge this month, one you can really play with...Lots of Layers!

Here's my make...

Image - Love You Mum by That Craft Place

The insert this time is actually the waste from where I cut the circle die cuts!  The holes in the paper is perfect for showing enough white to write you greeting!  I was way to happy about this use of the waste than I think I should have been lol
Here's the what and how's:
The image is I Love You Mum by That Craft Place Etsy Shop and is coloured with copics.
The backing paper is My Minds Eye 12 x 12" paper pad and I matted it onto the base card, I then layered a strip of lace across the card, gathering it into blobs of hot glue as I went to give the illusion of pleats.  With the spare paper after trimming I hand cut out the trailing leaves and Layered them onto the base card to add height.
The image was edged with Victorian Velvet distress ink and Frantage and then it was layered onto the card, but!  I layered a circle die cut underneath it to add a little dimension to the square card!
Then...I layered 3 circles cut from the backing paper off cuts, that I had first scrunched to make the flower, adding a bit of bling to the centre.
The final touches were to add a few swipes of white Gesso here and there to give a shabby effect and then to add a touch of Rangers Stickles to the leaf's (that I'm gonna call another layer! lol)

Here are the close ups:
Subtle dimension with the layers

I love this type of flower
