Time to Party

The March challenge at Inspiration Emporium is 'Add a little P.O.P.'  I have decided to do this by using bright colours and foam pads to add depth to my project.

I started by running a white card stock Tim Holtz die cut tag through my big shot inside the DoCrafts Xcut chronology clocks tri emboss embossing folder, next I rubbed embossing ink over the top of the raised image and covered and heated with clear embossing powder. I inked the tag with Tim Holtz Summer distress inks as these colours are lovely and bright.  Next I stamped the word party and 2 images of the girl from one of the Docrafts creativity magazine free stamp sets, I also used a couple of words from the Tim Holtz chit chat.  I inked the backgrounds of the 3 words and also another piece to be used as my background for the image, I also spritzed water to create a mottled effect before covering with Tim Holtz rock candy crackle paint.  I backed all four pieces onto black card stock to give definition.  For the stamped girl I coloured both images the same using Letraset promarkers and cut the second image to leave just the dress and hair and decoupaged on top of the first using foam squares.  I added ribbon and layered all the pieces as below.
Thanks for looking!
