My Little Ballerinas

It's time for another challenge over at the Pile It On Challenge Blog

This week our challenge to you is to USE AT LEAST TWO DIE CUTS

We are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet. They are offering our winner a $10 gift voucher. 
Thanks, Stitchy Bear!!

I used Chloe's Ballet Lessons and colored her up with my Prismacolor pencils. I created each of my daughters and their ballet lesson leotard uniform colors. 

I also wanted to show that even if you are a CAS card maker (like me), you can still use layers and keep your card CAS.

I die cut two stars to create layers. On the biggest, I added adhesive to the edges and sprinkled loose glitter to create a 'glittered' star. The smaller star was actually cut with the image printed on it so that her ties would still be visible even after I fussy cut her out. I popped everything up to create more dimension.

I embossed the back panels with my Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder. The card stock is Stampin' Up's Bashful Blue and Orchid Opulence. 

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
