    The issue you had is that you didn’t shadow the layers like the first person did. She used gray ink to create a shadow, which made each ring stand out more. She also may have used one of those puffy tabs so that each layer stood up from the previous one.

  2. Heidi says:

    Thats not too bad! She just needed to put double stick foam tape in between the layers so that they were separated! keep it up!

  3. Sherry says:

    I mad these too. You have to us the little foam things to add dimension. These don’t look too bad!

  4. Sherry says:

    Inking the edges of the circles would have made all the difference. It wasn’t bad as-is, though.

    Inking the edges of the circles and using foam tape to raise the levels would have made all the difference. It wasn’t bad as-is, though.

  6. Jen says:

    Agree with everyone else that you need to use some of the foam dimensionals to separate your layers. It also looks like you used plain paper instead of cardstock which caused the paper to wrinkle.

  7. Rebecca Ednie says:

    You need to use Cardstock instead of thin paper. And there is way too much liquid glue as well. Foam dimensionals lift the layers and use a sponge tapped on to an ink pad to highlight the edges. You can buy small foam squares or circles at craft stores or use double stick foam tape from the dollar store. Or use two layers of fun foam and a dry adhesive.
