Happy WOYWW 214. If you are wondering what this is all about, then pop over to Julia at STAMPING GROUND and see what we all do every Wednesday... we're basically nosey :-D Hee hee
I am just messin' around today - did the Greek class this morning and I blew their minds trying to teach them the Accusative case !!! I think my poor little pupils were totally shell shocked by the time our hour was up LoL
Here is a nosey at my Big Shot station on the other side of my room :-)....

Now, I treated myself recently to a couple of the new 3D M-Bossability folders from Spellbinders and you say I played with one on some green mirri card.. on the left there :-)
The bit I cut off it I used as a backing for a little creation I have made for the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #155 - which is sponsored this week by A Day For Daisies and the Theme is to use the Spotlight Technique. That means that you chose an area of your stamp/digi and colour it in and leave the rest in black and white. The 'spotlit' bit seems to be then cut out and set on top of the original image.
I have never tried this so here is my attempt....
I cut out a 1" circle from the little mermaid and coloured it with Copics, then I mounted it onto a bit of green card and stuck it back on with a 3D foamie.
The image was mounted onto the matching green card after edging with Tim Holtz Distress Ink. I cut some little leafy thingies that look a bit like seaweed and I added some Stickles to it for shine.
I sanded the mirri card to make the embossed shells show out a bit more.
