Paper Hollow Piano
This Xpreshons by Paper Hollow card gets its' sense of depth from overlapping and overlaying.
I began by stamping my central image (the piano) in black onto some acrylic. I then stamped various chalk ink pads over another piece of white cardstock, using the acrylic as a guide, to keep the center as open as possible. I stamped the circles and the saying on those shapes, sometimes without reinking...again keeping the center more open.
Then I stamped those smaller stamps on the acrylic in black, layered everything and affixed the acrylic with small brads.
IRL this gives marvelous dimension and depth to a flat card.
