Lil Christmas Tree...

"Lil Peanuts' Christmas Tree" can be found HERE
Aud Sentiments' current challenge is to Start Your Christmas Projects!  There is a week left on this challenge - and if you need some ideas... check out the DT samples!  There are 2 sponsors this go around - Stitchy Bear & Lacy Sunshine, and thus TWO prizes!  You can submit up to FIVE projects - so get crackin' and get a head start on the Holidays!

  • "Lil Peanuts' Christmas Tree" was provided to me by  Lacy Sunshine Stamps 
  • For this image I used Paper Tole Technique to give her dimension.  Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the images.  The layers were both glued in some places & elevated in others with foam tape to achieve the desired dimension.
  • The focal image was cut simultaneously with two sizes of die cuts - each die cut was elevated with foam tape and then the 3 layers of the image itself were layered on top of that so that there are five layers of elevation to this image.
  • Sentiment is from Penny Black
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • Base CS is Relflections  purchased at Michaels
  • Inside is same DP as used on the front and is a stash item.
  • Die Cuts used for the two cuts on the focal image panel and for the sentiment panel are from a set by Spellbinders.
  • Ribbon is stash
  • Three clear acylic stars are stickers from ??
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer   
  • Hand colored with Copics:
