Hello, it's time again to be a Crazy Cousin for Double Trouble Layers Challenge. This challenge is all about layers. I tried a new fold and piled on the layers.

Double Trouble's Crazy Cousin Layers Challenge
Here is my project. Double Trouble asks that you tell them how many layers and trying to count, I believe there is more than 10!! I die cut, inked, colored, stamped and fussy cut to create this scene.
Here are the details of the challenge. I added pearls to the center of the die cut flowers to comply with the twist.
My card began with this layer. I created the folds and determined what sides would "show" and inked those pieces up with Distress Oxide Bundled Sage. The center was die cut with the vine die so it didn't need to be completely inked. The center panel is 5.5"x5.5" to fit the vine die cut.
Here is a side view. I watched a video but because I die cut the front instead of making that side the back I had to make it work with my changes. I don't know that I would make it this way again.
One tip I took from the video was to reinforce the front panel with extra layers. I die cut another half sheet of the vines and glued it behind just off center to create a shadow. The bottom is reinforced with a thin layer of die cut "grass". I also glued the die cut layer with the fairy and mushrooms directly on the front panel. I layered a die cut and inked pieced of grass which was 1.5-2" in height. I added a drop of glue to the fairy's leg to provide support from the taller grass layer. I also stamped a mushroom cluster on that layer.
I used Distress Oxide Forest Moss on the next two layers. I dusted all the layers with green shimmer ink before assembling the card. The trees are die cut and embossed from the same set and inked with Forest Moss. The are not sprayed with shimmer ink. I stamped flowers on the first hill layer. The two hill layers are opposite sides of the die cut.
I colored the die cut mushrooms and fairy with alcohol markers. I used Spectrum Noir shimmer alcohol on the dress, wings and hair of the fairy.
The back of the shadow box is a sheet of paper from the kit. I also cut the flowers and purple vine from printed paper.
