I used Heather Mist colored Flower Soft for the look of with all the fallen leaves. Martha Stewart fence punch for the little white picket fence along the front. Can't have Cammi wandering off!!

So this week I used Eris baking Christmas Cookies!! I thought he was so cute, and since we are HUGE University of Alabama fans, I just had to use the elephant, and if ya notice, use their colors lol (well except for the green)
So anyways, Eris was printed out 3 times and layered in the center of the card. He was colored once again with my Prisma Pencils and Gamsol. Glossy Accents were used on his eyes & toes and the batter in the bowl.
All papers are from the Rob & Bob Studio Holiday Slab V from Provo Craft.
Ribbon is from Michaels and the snowflakes are from Soft Spoken.
Studio G ink was used for edging.

Sewn Together Challenge ~Week 3..9/8-9/14~ "Hollyday Fishes from Fawn!!"

So this week I used Fawn swimming in her snowglobe!! I thought she was cute, and really reminds me of Nemo, so I made a sad attempt of making Fawn look like a long lost cousin of Nemo lol Anyways, again I wanted to do something different from a card, so this week I went with a double layered shakerbox! I enlarged the image to make a more lifesize snowglobe and then layered Fawn and the tree to give it a more 3D look. Once I done that, then I put another acrylic layer on top of Fawn and filled it with fine blue glitter to take the look of water. Outlined the globe with gold stickles. The image was printed 3 times and was colored with prisma pencils and gamsol and then layered.
I then printed the same size image a 4th time and glued the shaker box image and the 4th image to the front and back of a scored piece of cardstock, matching the size of the globe and then cutting around it to form a snowglobe shaped card!
You can then decorate the inside as you'd like!!!

Hope ya like!!
