Puffed Blended Bloom ~ FMS145

I made this card for Freshly Made Sketches 145.
Don't you just LOVE Pinterest???!!!  I sure do!  Especially when it makes it so easy to find and share cards and new (or new to me) stamping techniques.  This card uses a puffed up technique that doesn't really have a name, I guess.  I found this fun little tutorial by Deb Valder on YouTube via Pinterest.  You outline your image with a stylus and then glue a little bit of cotton ball to the back of the image.  When you glue your image to your card you get a raised or puffed up effect.  It's something new and neat to try!  

I tried to taking some photos to showcase the technique, but I think it's hard to see.

This one might be a little better.
Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Blended Bloom
Paper: Bermuda Bay, Hello Honey, Bella Bloom & Fresh Prints DSP
Ink: Memento Black, Coastal Cabana & Daffodil Delight Blendabilites markers
Accessories: Sequin trim, Hello Honey and Coastal Cabana ribbon, Sweet Stitches Designer button, Bermuda Bay bakers twine, Windows framelits

Thanks for taking a peek!
