Pixie Cottage Challenge # 19 ; 3-D Decoupage Paper Tole

It time for another Wednesday Challenge from the Pixie Cottage.
This week we have a wonderful sketch for you designed by one of our own design team members Pam!
As well as the sketch we have the technique challenge of Paper Tole. Some people call this Decoupage and the technique involves multiple layers of the same initial image. So you stamp more than one of the image and then cut out and pop up parts of the image to form dimension in the layers. It is not cutting out a whole of the image, just the parts that would be at the front/top layer if the image was in 3D. Hopefully you'll be able to see some of the effect on the teams cards.
Remember also that our challenges are "Take Your Pick" and you can choose to do the sketch, the technique or both!

One randomly picked winner will get their choice of 2 Pixie Cottage Stamps and the Design Teams Top Three entries will get to display the winners badge on their blog.
Winners will be announced on the Friday following the end of the challenge.

This week I used this adorable stamp called
Love Bug by Eileen Gutierrez


My papers were 29th street Market by My Mind's Eye and my favorite solid is by Bazzill. While I was out at our local Micheal's, I found the Ladybug MS punch on clearance as well as these cute ladybug embellishments by Jolee. So I just had to use them!
I colored and shaded my ladybug image with copics on 3 layers. By cutting out just parts of the image and popping it up with dimensional foam pieces the 3-D look was achieved.
Join in our challenge with either the sketch or both and show us that beautiful artwork.
