Sisters In Christ Challenge

The challenge on Sisters In Christ this week is a really fun one. You must have something on your card that is 'hidden' from first view. I would love to do several of these! There are so many fun ways to create like this.

Alas, only one could be done tonight, so here it is. :)

The card was made using the Hydrangea set from Clear Dollar Stamps. I used 2 layers of the actual flower part for the image and one for the shadow. The piece was colored with Copic markers. The ball part of the flower is popped up from the other part, and all of it is covered in glass finish, with small 'beads' of the finish placed around the flower and leaves to look like dew. The leaves are curled under a bit to give a little more dimension.

You can see the 'dew' a little better in this picture.

The tag under the flower slides out to show a sentiment ....

The background was run through the Cuttlebug. I just love the lace 'ribbon' used here, don't you?! I can't wait to use that again. Gorgeous. The background was, also, sewn to add a little more texture and interest.
