Creating Dimension

I have to work tonight, so have no time to make a card :(  

But someone today asked me how I created the dimension on my little animal cards:  

So I took an extreme close up to better illustrate my dodgy description.


Basically, it requires cutting foam pads into tiny fragments...
Hope this helps.

And I thought I'd take a close-up photo of my new favourite technique - clear embossing on white then inking on top!  


This was inspired by Sarah's layout here.

Off back to work now...

Making dimensions on part of the little cute animals is so clever! Love these! Thanks for the close up, Lucy. Have a good working evening.

Very gorgeous blog Lucy - and a good idea to provide some tips to other card makers out there! I'm sure there are plenty of people who are looking for this kind of info...
Hooray for Lucy's beautiful cards!
