The Flower Challenge #17

I remember years ago when Holly Hobby was in vogue and we used to make shadow boxes by cutting images of her and layering the bits and pieces to make it look 3D.  That's really dating me I know but that's what I think of when you say paper piecing.  And I did a similar technique for my card for The Flower Challenge.
I used DoodleBuds from WPlus9 and stamped the flowers on a variety of DSP, fussy cutting it all, layer by layer.  It's a little difficult to see but the centers of the two largest flowers are popped up as are the two center petals on the brown flower.  Even though they are both red, the center of the red flowers is a different paper from the body.  I had so much fun making this and it was a good stamp set to do it with.

  3. My thoughts exactly - a great stamp to do this technique with! Lovely. And yes reminiscent of what we called decoupage I think.
