You can see in the photo below, how we layered the balloon -
Here is a card made with the same technique - It was done using the large Magnolia flower image and stamping it several times and cutting out different layers.
You can see those layers below and some of the water coloring as we start to put it together.
With this flower we used the bone folder as well as the dimensionals - so we could curve the leaves and petals up and make the flower look like it was coming up off the paper.
And here it is again from the side view.
I hope you liked this technique and will leave me a comment letting me know what you think. ~Maureen
