Creative Cotton Balls

A couple weeks ago I showed you all the cards from my August SAS, including the Kinda Koala bear stuffed with cotton balls....not sure of the official technique name.... but reminds me of the olden days when we used puffy paint and gave the image that puffed up look..... but instead of using paint, this is sooo much easier and fun to make! The picture doesn't do it justice... hard to see but take a look:

You outline your image with a stylus and then glue a little bit of cotton ball to the back of the image.  When you glue your image to your card you get a raised or puffed up effect.  It's something new and neat to try!  

You can see this fun little tutorial by Deb Valder on YouTube

Try it.. you'll like it!
