Agapanthus

Morning all and hello August!
It's time also for a new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers, not fantasy but proper old fashioned stamping required!
This time our theme is-

LOTS OF LAYERS

Now I'm not into slapping on the layers in cards so I had to think hard about my DT inspiration project. So when I saw the latest sketch over at CASe this Sketch, I knew where I was going with my design.


I think the technique I used here is termed by some, triple time stamping. What it really is, is stamping over panels temporarily adhered together then pulled apart and mounted on contrasting card maintaining the pattern. I used the colours over at Colour Me but as I don't have Stampin Up colours I used the nearest DI's I had. After arranging my circ;les on my base panel I stamped the Stampendous Agapanthus Cluster stamp in the corally ink then again in dark blue. The panels were then separated and mounted on blue card and trimmed. A Crafters Companion greeting was stamped in blue on a white banner and adhered to the base at one end.
Job done, CAS with layers!

OK, now it's over to you. Pop over to the blog to check out what the rest of the DT have come up with for your inspiration. Remember no digis allowed.
