Craftitude Challenge #66 ~ Pop it up!

I love Rick St Dennis images...they tell the most wonderful stories and are a dream to colour. That's why I am so excited this fortnight because Rick St. Dennis is the sponsor for our new Craftitude Challenge, Pop It Up (add dimension). I am particularly smitten with his hat ladies so, of course, that's who I chose to feature on my ATC. This beauty is called May Lily of the Valley. I coloured her with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut her leaving a narrow white border to help her stand out from the background. She was popped up on foam dots and asked to wait to one side (which didn't please her, I might add.

The background is a scrap of greeny-blue mottled designer paper which I stamped with a script stamp and Memento Teal Zeal ink as well as a circle stamp and Brilliance Galaxy Gold. This layer was edged in the gold ink and popped up on foam tape before being matted with black cardstock. Tiny blue glittery butterflies were punched and adhered to black ones in the center so that the wings could be popped up. Black half pearls were adhered to the bottom left corner and tiny ones to the butterfly heads.

Thank you for joining the elegant May and far from elegant me today. We both appreciate your company. When you get a chance, stop over at the Craftitude Challenges blog to see what the rest of our talented team did with their fabulous Rick St Dennis images. We would love to have you play along with our Anything Goes/Pop it Up challenge this fortnight.

I am entering this ATC in the following challenges:

Life is good; so is art.
