Hi ya. Yesterday was my turn to take over the Stamping Bella blog with DT Thursday and I wanted to share some inspiration on how to give your stamping a 3D-decoupage effect! I made this card using Uptownie Winnie Looking Out Of The Window. Here is the finished card with all its' layers- doesn't Winnie just look so dreamy?! Read on if you want to see how I made her...
Firstly, you need to look at the image to see what you need to stamp out to create the layers. Here I decided to stamp out:
1. The complete image
2. The complete image again
3. The window box and foliage
On the first image, I coloured the entire image and paper pieced the curtains. I didn't worry too much about the quality of colouring on the frame, window box and foliage as these will be covered by other layers.
On the second image, I coloured the frame and the window box and foliage (not worrying too much about the quality of colouring on the window box and foliage as this will be covered by a final layer). I then cut out the frame and the window box and foliage.
On the third image, I coloured the window box and foliage and cut out. I then cut out a piece of acetate to fit the window.
I then made the rest of the card and stamped out the accompanying sentiment. I then attached the acetate to the top window frame using very thin (3mm) double-sided tape and assembled the layers using 3D foam pads.
You can see the layers here.
Love how she looks tucked in behind the window. Wonder what she's thinking about!! x
