Sharing Memories...

 I originally bought this stamp because it reminds me of reading Winnie the Pooh to my brother when he was little.  To this day I still call him "Pooh".
This image from Penny Black was stamped four times, colored with Copics and then cut up in layers and each piece was sculpted from the back before layering.  It looks really flat here because the scanner does not pick up the depth...  the dimension can be seen better in the photo below.  Since the Penny Black Sat Challenge was "no patterned paper", I used a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder and imprinted the blue panel with clocks to further the theme of the passage of time.   I finally hand stitched that panel on to the base card. (That I regret... can you tell I don't sew?)
The close up below gives you a hint at the four layers of the image with her core body and the desk as #1, the book, the Teddy's body and her head as #2, their hats and her arm as the 3rd layer and finally the rose on her hat and the butterfly as the 4th.  Each layer is floated on foam tape to provide the dimension.
 This card should be eligible for the following
IMAGES:  The focal image is "Sharing Memories" from Penny Black; The sentiment "Thinking of You" is from Stampington.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the images; background paper and base CS is from my stash.  The blue panel has been embossed with a Tim Holtz folder. (See clocks in the picture to the right.)
INKS: The sentiment is stamped with Distress Inks and the images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored with Copics:
