~NSD Challenge - It's All About Perspective

NSD Challenge #4 is to Stamp Out Flat Die Cuts!  Nadia is an expert on this and shows you exactly how to do it with EVERY project she creates.  For this challenge, I broke out my Imagine (which has been sorely neglected) and my Kate's Kitchen cart.  I used both pop dots and inking to achieve dimension for this project.  I also created it as an easel card.  I cut the window out four time, once at 6" and three times at 5" .  From two of the 5" images, I cut off the windowsill and the window rod and added them on top of the 3rd 5" window, building them up. I inked these edges as well.  I cut a separate set of curtains in yellow and pop dotted them on top of the existing green.  From this modified 5" image, I removed the sky and then pop dotted it on top of the 6" image.  This makes the window 3D.  I used the flowerpot from the window image, but removed the flower and cut a hyacinth from Walk in my Garden at 2".  I inked the pieces and turned out the top set of leaves for added depth.  This went on my built out windowsill.  The inside sentiment is a stamp that says Bloom Where you are Planted.  The one thing I discovered in this project is that stamping out flat die cuts takes a lot of extra time, but what a beautiful result.  I hope you enjoy it.  Thanks for stopping by!
