Another fun image for the 4th - I enjoyed coloring him! He was "fancy cut", sculpted from the back, mounted on foam tape for dimension. Two layers of DP, twine, button, tag and faux brads finished him off. Only regret is that my handwriting is not better today - heavy sigh.
TOP TIP for Top Tip Tuesday: Once you have cut out an image to mount on your project, don't layer it flat, instead add dimension by "sculpting" the image from the back. This is easily done by using a Pergamano pad if you have one, or a mouse pad or rubber mat - place the image face down and in small circles emboss the entire back using a large ball tool or the back of a spoon. Mount the image on silicon or foam double sided tape to maintain the curvature.
