Flaunt It Fridays: Turtle

Happy Christmas Eve!! This is it! The last day to get everything wrapped and ready for the Big Morning. Im personally freaking out because Im NOT ready. Ahhhh! lol. Christmas just snuck up on me. Anybody feel that way?

So onto today's card... This week's Flaunt It Fridays cut is the Turtle from Create a Critter. I had fun playing with the cut this week. I feel as if I can relate to the turtle. I sometimes feel that I work slow. Sometimes I'll take over a day to work on a card when it would take someone else an hour or so. And since I thought it would be funny to exaggerate my point, I placed  my tiny turtle in a scenery with big rain drops and semi-high grass to slow him down even more.

As always, if you want to play along and you do not own this cart you can use a similar cut. When you are done, go over to Flaunt It Fridays to link up. In the meantime, tho, hop over to the rest of the DT's blogs and check out their beautiful work.

Picture 2: I used my Prismacolor Pencils, Ink Pads and White Gel Pen to add depth to the cuts.
Inking the edges can work great when you want to cover up your mistakes, especially like I did. I got heavy handed with my Prismacolor pencil on the circle base. I didn't like the look/flow of it so I used my ink pad to distress the edge and blend in the colored pencil.

My concept was for this to be a "Sorry, I'm so Late" card. This is the reason why I placed the turtle in this scenery. The turtle is already slow as it is but add the huge rain drops into the mix, the poor little guy doesn't stand a chance. :)

Thanks for stopping by/commenting. I can't wait to see how you will Flaunt your cut.
