Fluttering Layers

… most of the layers fluttered into my trash can! I struggled with this card - I think mostly because I’ve never used a collage stamp before even though I’ve always loved them! It took me a while to get the results that I wanted - I kept stamping, embossing, cutting…. Someone could probably make 5 more cards with what is in my special “circular file”… LOL

This card is for today’s Technique Challenge on SCS - Patience Grasshopper… you can view the challenge here ->

This challenge was to use multiple images stacked to give your project dimension - the technique is called “Tole” - interesting I tole painted for years… never used any paper… I use this techique all the time and thought the collage stamp would put an interesting twist on it...

Fluttering Layers:

Here are the layers on the focal image:
White CS, Pretty in Pink direct to paper, stamped in black
White CS, black embossed
Glossy CS, polished stone Pretty in Pink & black, black embossed
White CS, Pretty in Pink direct to paper, stamped in black
White CS, Pretty in Pink direct to paper, clear embossed, brayered black (butterfly)

There are glitter doodles on the card that make it sparkle IRL.

Feeble attempt to photograph the layers:

From Suzanne - I love this one. I want to see that one in person. What is a "collage stamp"? I'm thinking I might have one. Would love to see some close ups of this one.
