Monday’s NOTHING challenge with Outlawz

Tole Snowman

Here are the rules as stated. 

Happy Nothing Day!

To Honor National Nothing Day, Our Theme This Week Is

Nothing But Your Sentiment and One Embellishment!

I know, I Know, it sounds very minimalistic but I can assure your there is NOTHING to it.

You can use layers.  This does not have to be a flat card; but remember, the edges of your layers cannot be decorative...so put away the Martha Stewarts and the Fiskars!  Embossing Folders are okay!

I found this little DOTS stamp in my stash.  I love doing the Tole look with these “chunky” type stamps.  Stamp image on cardstock first and do basic coloring. Then stamp another of the same image on a scrap piece and color in the parts you are going to pop up.  Cut out the individual parts .  Turn the pieces over and using a stylus go around the edges kind of bending the edges up towards you.  This gives it the puffy 3-D look.  Now place the individual pieces over the image on the card with dimmensionals. On this card I popped up all of him.  I used thicker dimensionals (stampin up) on the hat and mittens and then used not so thick dimensionals on this face.  Isn’t he just adorable looking?
