C4C250 - Life is a Balancing Act

Hello! I'm popping in to share a card I created for the most recent Crazy 4 Challenges C4C250 challenge, which is to create a card featuring animals, but they can't include bears or bunnies! :) 

To create my card,  I started by first stamping the teeter totter image from Avocado Arts' You Can Do It set onto watercolor paper with Stazon gray ink.  I then watercolored the image, and set it aside to dry.  Next, I die cut two pieces of red card stock with a scallop circle die to create a mini-card base.  I also die cut mint and white card stock layers, and adhered them together.  

Once the image was dry, I fussy cut it out, and determined the general placement.  Using watercolor pencils, I created a small shadow on the white card stock circle layer.  The sentiment was then stamped in versamark, and heat embossed with white powder.  To finish up, I adhered the sentiment and image with pop dots, then embellished with clear gems.

Want to play along with us this week? All you need to do is create a card/project featuring any animals other than bears/bunnies, and upload it to the linky found on the C4C250 post HERE.

Also, to see my other Avocado Arts creations for the new You Can Do It set, please stop by the Avocado Arts blog... Have a great one!
