Awhile ago I received a RAK that had this adorable little girl on it and she looked "puffed out", not popped up but "puffed out"! I have been thinking about how to accomplish that look. The balloon seemed a likely candidate to try it on since it has a rounded look to it anyway. I am not sure it "puffed" as much as I would have liked but I had a hard time keeping the sides glued down if I "puffed" it more! :)
Here's what I did, (you all may know a better way, if so please share with me!!!) after cutting out the image I took a bone folder and while the image was in my hand or on a mouse pad I rubbed the back of it to make it sort of curve inward. When the image was curved inward enough for me I cut a piece of sponge to attach to the back and then adhered the edges directly to the paper underneath it. Ta da it gave it a "puffed out" look! You can't see it real well in the photo but IRL it is defintely puffed!!!
Yippee, I have yet another cool technique play with. If you try this let me know I would love to see your results!
