So today's challenge today was the technique challenge. The technique was to layer a pictures so it pops out. It took me longer to decide what set to use than it actually did to make the card. Of course than I had to wait for my batteries to charge before I could take the pictures. My son loves to look at the wrestling pictures after a match and I suppose he forgot to shut off the camera when he was done. Well, I decided to go hog wild with the dimensionals. I am personally a pop up glue dot person but decided to use the dimensionals for this challenge. I not only used them to pop up the parts of the insects I also used them to pop up the whole layer. I sponged the colors around the edges. I also pierced in the corner of the small insects and all the way around the Dragon fly. Piercing can add so much to a card. I was so thankful that the colors I choose I also had the matching eyelets for. I did not find that out until I had the idea and went eyelet hunting in my Stampin' Stack and Store. We did not have all the ribbon that I wanted so I needed to color some with my markers to get the colors that I wanted.
