Well, I do layers, a LOT. And sometimes I even pop them up with foam dots or tape. So this looked like fun!
There is a weekly sketch challenge on Split Coast Stampers which almost always uses layers in the sketch. I follow this challenge every week but have never done one of the sketches because they looked to "busy" to me...but this past week, the sketch (SC548) was right up my (and this challenge's) alley. So I pulled out my papers, my ephemera and my pop dots and got to work.
After quite a bit of cutting and popping, this is what I came up with (the flowers are about as "Frilly" as I get...):
- Papers: Authentique 6x6 "Classique: Beauty" (#BEA016) - three different coordinating papers; Authentique 3x4 Journaling Cards "Classique: Beauty" - cut a strip from a journaling card; Paint Stripz "Mustard (muted)", trimmed and layered on mesh which is, in turn layered on a scrap of paper
- Ephemera: Heidi Swaps "Arrows - Travel" (hiding behind the flower, bottom left corner); GCD Studios "Whoop De Doo" epoxy sticker to hold on the tag; Hero Arts Art Flowers "Sunshine Print" (CH206), held together with Hot Off the Press "Family: "Finished in a Flash" brads; and some die-cut corner triangles and a tag, maker unknown!
And just to prove that I did "raise it up!", a side view:
