This card I did for Be Inspired #92 at http://cuttlebugchallenge.blogspot.com/ This week your are to create a project....card, layout, altered item, home decor piece or even a wearable item that includes a garden critter with legs and make sure you use the Cuttlebug in your project! I used Walk in My Garden cartridge for my bee, catapillar, sign, dirt and flower pieces. The grass I cut 3 times from Plantin Schoolbook and then layered it. I used the hide contour on my Gypsy so I could seperate the dirt from the sign and hid the little sign that was with this cut and then cut them to get my colors. I also cut an extra sign to get the post in a different color. I ran my sign through my cuttlebug using the distressed stripes folder to make it have a more of a wood look. Leaned it 'cus the caterpillar has been at work in the garden!! I cut the flowers and then tore them up to make it look like they had been eaten. The catapillar I hid in the grass gluing the body to some of the grass blades and using a 3D glue dot under the head. I cut the original cut and then the layer cut so he could have black legs and antennas. Used tiny pearls that I blackened with a marker for his eyes 'cus I didn't have any black that were small enough. Also put a catapillar on the inside. The bee I cut 4 times. Twice each in black and velumn. I glued the velumn ones together and then trimmed around the body part and then glued them between the 2 black pieces. Then kindof spread the wings out. (Learned this from Jeannie Phillips!) Then I put the stripes on top and used a 3D glue dot to pop him up on my card. The patterned paper I used is from a K and Company stack called 'Wild Saffron'. Come join the fun! It doesn't state a day but I'm thinking you have until Tuesday 7/20 since the challenges start on Wednesdays. Hope ya'll like my card!! :)
If you have a few minutes, check below. I've got 3 other cards that I've done for other challenges. Would 'loooove' for ya'll to take a look at them, too!!
