  1. I think I would’ve stamped his image then stamped the table on another piece of cs and cut out the table. I would then have adhered the table on top of him, maybe even with some pop dots?? Either way it would give dimention. Possibly do this with the pots as well. I just ordered these 2 sets and plan to order the Branching Out one next month…….you gave me some great ideas about incorporating these sets. Good luck!!! Oh, I love the SU markers for coloring. For a watercolor look I “scribble” with them on an acrylic block and take the ink up with the blender pen from there. HTH
