I have been wanting to do a shadow box card and paper piecing forever and so I did both! My digital image is from Elizabeth O. Dulemba called "Story Time Bears".
Teddy Stampers which requires you to use the sketch to the right. And Flutter By Wednesdays which requires a butterfly, fairy or angel on the card and this weeks challenge is paper piecing.
Danni the owner of Flutter By Wednesdays does an excellent tutorial on paper piecing. Here is the link that shows you how to do a shadow box. Finally my card!
Isn't it awesome! Side view
I love this card and will probably never give it away for it is my first of two new techniques to me! I printed out two of the images but in different sizes. I cut the bears away from the moon and I paper piece the moon with a photo I found online! (I hope this counts!) I added a whole lot of Diamond Glaze to the moon. The butterflies were made with Martha Steward butterfly punch and covered with butterfly stickers. Whatcha think? Hope you like it as much as me!!
And these are the colorings my grandchildren did!! The first one is by Abbie who is four years old. I was amazed in how she colored everything gray except for the face and bunny and then colored them separately.
The second one is by Travis who is nine years old! This is the first time he ever picked up a Copic marker and the only thing I showed him how to do was take the cap off and brush nib. He did the rest totally by himself. I only had certain images with me so the hat is a little too large....I was in awe watching him for he was so focus and total concentration on his coloring. Look at the tennis shoes and shoe strings, feather and trim on the hat! This looks better then some of the ones I do now!! He not only picked the images to color ...he also cut them out mostly by himself. .I was in awe!
Grandma signing off now! Thank you for looking and the kids will be looking to see whatcha say!
