I started by stamping each main succulent 5 or 6 times. I then numbered the petals according to which layer I wanted them so I didn't have to color each image every time. The largest succulent has 6 layers, the pale one 5 layers, and the other two 4 layers. Each layer was cut out, burnished (my tutorial can be found HERE) and added with dimensional tape. I have a close-up below so you can see the individual layers.
The top panel was made with three layers also. I layered the butterfly diecut over a piece of gingham decorative paper (Love Garden by Fabscraps) after embossing it with the included embossing folder. I then diecut an extra white piece and hand-cut the butterflies, folded their wings and adhered them in their centers to give them depth. I also added some Silver Moondust Glitter Drops (Nuvo) to the butterfly centers, as well as a few scattered sequins.
That's it for my project today. But wait...there's more.....
It's Power Poppy's 3rd Birthday and Marcella really knows how to celebrate.
