Lovely Layers (CTMH Technique Blog Hop)

Layers make every crafting project lovely!  Whether you're layering tons of pretty paper or layering your images, you're bound to love your projects more with more layers.  To add some ideas to your tool box, be sure to continue along this Lovely Layers technique blog hop.  (If you're already hopping, then you've probably arrived from Rebecca's blog.  From here you'll visit Annemarie next.)
My Mother's Day card for my mom combines two stamp sets, the current May stamp of the month Classic Summer Bash and the recently retired Chelsea Gardens Scrapbooking stamp set.  (Almost any floral could be used.)  I stamped the jar with Sapphire ink and then filled it by stamping the leaves from Chelsea Gardens in Juniper and Willow.

To continue my layering, I stamped the flower in Bashful with the edges rolled in Smoothie.  The center section is Canary.  I fussy cut out the flower and then added it over all the foliage with 3-D foam tape.  Notice that I also layered some Juniper leaves under my flower for more dimension.  Finally, I sponged Crystal Blue "water" in my jar and extended some of the stems with my Sap Green Shin-Han Twin Touch marker.
