Adding Dimension


There are many ways to add dimension to a project,

One of my favorites is to take pieces from an image, 
cut them out and then layer them back together suing pop dots for other foam adhesive.

This can be a time consuming process and the technique does work with every image.  

 I took this cute image from Whimsy stamps and made 4 layers of dimension with the the flower.
That means I needed to stamp the image 4 times so that I could fussy cut all of my pieces.

I like to add color to the area I am covering  with the popped out piece.  
That way there is no white exposed when someone look at the image from the side.  

I used adhesive foam between the layer of peddles.  

I did not want the image to be to think so I used a couple layers of card stock behind the center of the flower.  It give some dimension but it is not popped off quite as much as the lower layer.  

And the lase layer is the bee, which was just cut out and placed on top of the center. It only add a small amount of thickness but it is protruding from the image.

I decided to give the bees some sparkle by adding glitter to their bodies.  

Here is a side view
