Hi All! Here is my creation for this week's Throwback Thursday with Emma http://www.creativetimeforme.com/. This weeks challenge we were asked to use the Create a Critter cartridge, making a shaped card and to use the color orange. I got my CAC cart a few weeks ago and this has been my first chance to use it. My Aunts birthday is Sat. 10/9 so I decided to make her card to go along with the challenge. Here it is! I cut the fish bowl @ 5 inches in clear vellum and cut the shadow bowl in grey. I used light blue for the water and a great sandy colored paper for the sand, and a patterned green paper for the grass in the bowl. The little fish was cut @ 1.5 inches layered in two shades of orange and yellow shadow. The fish is inked orange on the edges and the bowl and "water" is inked with blue. I also added a blue hot rock for his little eye. Instead of using Design Studio to make the shape - I just cut two shadow pieces of the grey bowl and used three tiny brads to connect them. I had put the layers together with the brads but only scored the grey pieces and not the vellum. I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes and center over the holes (I had tried it scoring the vellum but it didnt look as good).
The inside sentiment I used my new EK Journal Plate & bracket punch - I used the computer to print up ~ "Hope you have a Fin-tastic Birthday!" TFL!
