Something to Crow About: Bitten by the Bug 2 Challenge

Welcome to my inspiration for the latest Bitten by the Bug 2's challenge Something to Crow About.  There's eleven layers to this project.  I cut them from various papers. The outer frame is a black shimmer paper.  The bottom (white moon) is white paper sprayed with shimmer paper.  The cloudy sky is a grey vellum.  The example in CDS was all black and white but I added a little color with the deep purple night sky.

I did mean to add a gem to the eye of the crow but forgot while finishing up.  I also left a stray piece of paper on the front of the crow.  

The cuts were super easy to make.  The vellum did throw a little fit with the little scrolls in the corners.  I was able to salvage what I needed for the clouds.  I just snipped away the incomplete scroll cut areas of the vellum.

  1. This is such an intricate, detailed project. The purple sky definitely adds more color. I can imagine the amount of pop dots needed.

  2. Wonderful detail to the scary scene.
