Let's Travel Together

Hi!  Here's a little card I plan to enter in TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Pop Challenge.  We're to use a technique to "pop up" our projects so it reminded me of the "spotlight" technique that can be found on Splitcoast Stampers here.  Claudia and Company had a spotlight challenge also that I thought was pretty neat.

I picked TGF's Oliver & Amelia's Journey set because I love they way Amelia is looking at her bear and that's what I wanted to spotlight.  I also popped up the bear and her arm again on the spotlighted piece.  Paper tole technique, I think?

Here's another view.  I liked this technique because I didn't have to color much!  Although my hubby looked at it and gave it a weird look.  What?!  He says it's too artsy.  He likes simple the best which is true I suppose for most things.  But I'd say this is far from artsy.  Geez.

Did you notice my card edge?  Heehee, I just got my PTI edgers die so I had to try it.  Then I also wanted to use the banner die I got to put the sentiment from the Journey set.  I thought I could try to stamp each word of the sentiment in a straight row directly on the banner but kept getting it crooked so finally just stamped it on pink and cut it out to paste on the banner.  The banner is also popped up a bit.  I also used PTI's impression die on the kraft paper.  Amelia is stamped on PTI's rustic white cardstock. 

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

This is so cool, Eva! Something different and very artsy! Love the decorative edge--I'm waiting for my PTI order, too.

What a neat card! All I know is that's a lot of layering and coloring! You picked a very cute stamp! Ha ha, lots of new dies! Looks nice! How do you like the impression plates? Did you have to buy the 2 extra mats? I got my PTI order today. I might need to order again... now I'm thinking I should have gotten the ticket die.

VERY COOL! I love the spotlight technique and you rocked it! Loving the kraft & pink and the impressed background, too.

Wow, this looks so cool Eva! Love all the textures and the shaped edge, the spotlight treatment really puts the focus on Amelia & her teddy...very artsy! :)
Awesome card!

I love this! Adorable, and I do love that pop! I'm tempted to get that edger die especially after seeing your creation!
