The Blog Candy today is another Stampin’ Up Sale-a-Bration set called, “A Happy Thing.”


For the main image the lemon was stamped, masked and stamped again.  For just a little dimension a third lemon was stamped, colored, cut out and then adhered to the main image over the front lemon.

TIP: The coloring of the third lemon included using a black Copic Marker on the cut edge.  I think this gives a more finished look and helps the cut image stand out even more. Smiley.Yes1Ani
