First thing I do is work out which areas of the image I want to pop up and in this case I chose the whole head and then the bow as a thrid layer.
I printed out the parts I needed. To ensure they all match sizewise it is important to choose the size of the whole image first, then copy and paste it so you have the exact same size for the layering.
I have been doing this for ages and am confident enough to crop and paste but for a beginner I suggest pasting the whole image.
Next color the images so match your papers. You will see that on the whole image the head is only colored with one layer of color, no need to waste ink on shading when it will be conered by a popped up layer. You will see the same thing on the bow part of the hat.
When you have colored your images it is time to cut them out. Use small sharp scissors and an exacto knife to get into the small spots, like around the hair. When you have cut them out I use a grey Copic (W1) to go around the edge of the image to color in any tiny parts of white that might be showing.
Turn the images over and use craft foam on each layer to pop it up. I use my ATG gun to adhere the foam but you could use foam glue if you like. You could also use silicon glue instead of the foam but I prefer the foam sheets.
Here you can see the depth that the decoupage gives to the completed image.
Now complete your card as desired.
I like to echo the outside design on the inside of my card for continuity.
Here you can see the completed image closer on the card.
I hope you have enjoyed my little tutorial and that next time you color a Bestie you may give it a try.
