3D art

I used to do what they called paper tole when I was a young child. So I thought why not do the same thing with a stamped image. I cut out each petal and turned it over and rubbed the back side with a stylus ( I used the foam mat that comes with the tool kit but you could use cardboard also). I then adhered the petal to the main image using a pop up glue dot (cut in half) to give it the 3D look.

Here is a side view. The pedals closer to the middle I used a whole glue dot rolled in half to make it pop out more.

Colors: Not quite Navy, Kiwi Kiss, Blue Bayou

For the ribbon I took white ribbon and colored it with the stamp pad.
