Lawnscaping Challenge #103 Dimension

Hi all!!  Welcome to a new challenge over at Lawnscaping Challenges!  We are all about Dimension this go 'round!  Who doesn't love dimension.  It makes you cards or layouts just stand out!

I really wanted to capture that in my card for this challenge, and I hope you feel that I achieved just that!!

So - I kept the design pretty simple.  I wanted the dimension to speak for itself.  I inked up the cute fan image from Best Pun Ever from Lawn Fawn.  I think this is an adorable set!!  I first started stamping out my fan image three times and coloring one of the images in its entirety, and then color only parts of the other two images as I was only going to use parts of them.  I also wanted a "retro" feel with the color scheme.  I used my Copics to color in the fan(s) and then I fussy cut my images out except for the "full" fan that I colored.  Here I am showing you more of that dimension.  Loved how these photos really show it off!

To create the dimension, I used two different thicknesses of foam adhesive.  And, as you can see I wanted some texture too on my card, so I used an embossing folder that represents "wind swirling" and I used the de-bossed side.  

For my panels I used both the Small Stitched Rectangle Stackables and Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables.  And, of course to adhere all of my elements, I used more foam adhesive!  I also added a bit of shimmer to my fan's blades with Clear Wink of Stella brush pen.

I hope you are able to play along as there is a chance to win a $25 gift certificate with Ellen Hutson!!

Catch you back here soon!!
