KL SNS Challenge #16 "Poppin Up!"

Hey there, friends!! We are up to Challenge #16 over at KL Stampin N Scrappin's blog where the lovely Kristine has challenged us all to use a technique called Paper Tole. Well, I must say I had seen this before but didn't know the name. I first stamped the Baby Shower image 3 different times in which I paper peiced the baby's diaper and umbrella from the same piece of Sugar Rush paper, which I actually thought was more yellow than peachy colored until I placed it on top of the Barely Banana cs (Ooops . . . have I ever mentioned that I am color blind?! Yep, I am . . . SERIOUSLY. So if you see something odd, please tell me. I accept it as a handicap, but I refuse to give up my crafting. It just depends on what lighting it is in if I can figure it out or not). Then I stamped that little cutie on 2 pieces of whisper white so I could color him with my Copics. The oval was layered onto the scalloped oval (another piece of Sugar Rush paper) and popped up to keep the dimension more 3D on the image layer.

Also, I must say, I didn't think this out too well when I photographed this lovely pastel card on that bright red placemat (uggh shoulda Photoshopped that out). LOL Hang in there, as there are more closeup photos below in which I didn't use the placemat, so it's a little easier on your eyes.
Also these closeups were taken before I sponged on the blue sky.

can you see the popped up sections?! My camera seems to be on the fritz lately, so I will try
my best to get some better pics next post (pinky promise).

But hey, it's late . . . so these will have to do*wink* Now back to the card details . . . The CS is SU gable green and perfect plum to try and match the variegated colors in the ribbon. The green piece was put through the Big Shot with the numbers collage cuttlebug folder and layered on the perfect plum. Lastly, that sweet little baby buggy charm was added.
Well, it has been a bit of a crunch week without too much sleep. *sigh* and I have to get back up in about 6 hours to start working again, so I better get off of here and talk to y'all later.
Hope everyone has a great weekend . . . shoveling out? spending time with friends and family? Watching the Super Bowl? Well, be sure to squeeze in a little time to craft, and try your hand at Paper Tole so you can join us again this week at KL Stampin N Scrappin DT blog!! :)

Inky Hugs and Dream of Stampin . . . (that's what I hope to do) as it is off to bed for me . . .
Thanks for stoppin by!!
