Flourishes Friday - Focus On Dimension

Mornin', all! Today's Flourishes Friday Focus is on dimension, brought to us by Christine. Be sure to see what she has to say at the Flourishes blog.

For my card, I decided to use one of my favorite sets: Life, Love and Lemons. I love this lemon topiary--I grew a Meyer Lemon in a pot once--just to say I did it, LOL! Then it got to be too much trouble to take inside for the winter, etc., so I gave it away This image always reminds me of that plant.

I stamped the image on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I cut it out with a Long Classic Rectangle Nestabilities die and matted it with a layer cut from a Long Classic Scalloped Nestabilties die. Then I stamped just the pot twice more, colored the entire pot again, plus just the rim from the third copy. To create dimension, I popped each additional layer up on bits of foam adhesive. Here's a close up so you can see the dimension.

 And that's it! Here are the Copic markers I used:
