This card will be entered in several challenges this week.
Magnolia Stamp Lovers challenged us to Make is Dimensional. Magnolia Down Under challenged us to make a card using the Paper Tole technique. What is Paper Tole you ask? (Go ahead, I did.) "Paper Tole is the art of constructing a 3-dimensional image from a 2-dimensional print or image". The idea is you turn a single image into a multi layered image to give it a 3D effect." Unfortunately, I missed the cut off for this challenge (did not notice I started it on the cut off date). Oh well. Just Magnolia's challenge was One For The Girls.
Today, I was informed of a challenge blog I had not visited before. It is called Dare U 2 Digi Stamp. The basic rules for this challenge are to include a digi stamp image on your project. This week is Anything Goes, so I will enter this card in that challenge as well.
Here is my card...

Paper: DCWV textured cardstock, Joy's Soft Collection (Paper Pizazz)
Ink: Memento, Copics, Ink Jet Printer, Perfect Plum (SU!), Copics Spica Pen
Accessories: Where do I begin...Spellbinders Fancy Tags, butterfly from Joann (bridal section), Rose from Prima's, flat-back pearls, Blingz, Radiant Pearls, Stickles, lace, MS branch punch, rhinestones, Tim Holtz grunge board, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder.
I found this free digi carriage online. I made it as large as I could while still getting two carriages on one page (I hate to waste paper). I printed a total of 4 carriages, then cut them out to create the layers. I masked the bottom layer and stamped Noble Tilda, trying to give the effect of Tilda riding in the carriage. I think it worked really well. I love how she is peeking out of the door. I dressed her up with Stickles for her night on the town.
The carriage was painted (not colored) with Blingz and Radiant Pearls. I did the trim in gold and the body of the carriage in a mixture of light blue and silver. I used black Radiant Pearls for the tires. I added a little bling to the squiggle decoration with my purple Spica pen.
I used dimensional glue dots and silicone glue to raise my layers and make them dimensional.
I used my Spellbinders Fancy Tags for my sentiment and added some branches to add a little extra fairy tale feel. The line under "Make a Wish" are little itty bitty pearls.
The flourish at the top of the page is Tim Holtz Grunge Board. I colored the grunge board with distress ink, and then painted over it with Blingz.
I wanted a fairy for my fairy tale, so I used Mini Tilda. I colored her with Copics in very light colors, and then painted over her with Candlelight Blingz for a bit of fairy dust. I cut off the wings and mounted her on this lovely butterfly embellishment that I found in the bridal section of Joann.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
