Autism Bear Explosion box


I have had this project in my mind for quite some time.
The bear on top is from Kadoodle Bug Designs and can be found here: http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=55&products_id=1118 . It is an autism bear. I totally love him. 

The inking on the edges was done with my ebrush and Spectrum Noir markers.
I got my ebrush from Craftwell. Here is a link for the Amazon price: https://www.amazon.com/eBrush-Craftwell-Ebrush-Kit/dp/B00N9B4W9M . However, if you decide to get one, be sure to shop around. I didn't pay near this when I got mine. It was a while ago, though. I used Spectrum Noir markers for the ink. They work great in the ebrush.

The cardstock is some plain cardstock I had in my stash. (What will I ever do when I run out of my stash? 
The other elements are from Cricut Design Space Cricut Access (Free with subscription). I designed the box and lid using basic shapes from Cricut Design Space. 

Since I took these pictures I have put glue on the paper holding the Panda Bear and glued it to the lid to make a strong more stable base.

Split complimentary Mandela using Spectrum Noir markers

Wasn't feeling well today so I decided to color with my Spectrum Noir markers. I entered this beauty in the Spectrum Noir anything goes coloring contest. https://www.facebook.com/SpectrumNoir/app/600469859988196?app_data=referer_override%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.facebook.com%252F

3-D Teddy Bear from SVG Attic

This is the first project I made from SVG Attic. I love purple and I had enough of that color in my stash so that's the color I made him.  I used a type of thin white cord to put him together.  The shading was done with my ebrush.

It's Cold Outside Cards from Dreaming Tree

I totally love this set of cards from Dreaming Tree. 
 The cardstock is some plain colored cardstock I had in my stash. I didn't have White glitter cardstock so I sprayed adhesive on the trees and snowflakes on the Winter Woodland card and sprinkled white glitter on it. The glitter on the Peppy Penguin card hats I did by putting them through the Xryon (didn't have spray adhesive at the time) top facing the sticky, dipped them in glitter then put back through the Xyron with non-glitter side to the sticky. Presto! Glittered cardstock. The inking on the edges was done with my ebrush and Spectrum Noir markers.
I got my ebrush from Craftwell. Here is a link for the Amazon price: https://www.amazon.com/eBrush-Craftwell-Ebrush-Kit/dp/B00N9B4W9M . However, if you decide to get one, be sure to shop around. I didn't pay near this when I got mine. It was a while ago, though. I used Spectrum Noir markers for the ink. They work great in the ebrush.
I used foam dots the add dimension.
Years ago we all had the craze of having to use an embellishment we called"Skittles." They were little round plastic pieces. I think they were really just the filler that some people use to help flowers stand up in flower arrangments. I colored some red and purple and added them to the Christmas Village cascade card.
The Winter Woodland is designed to put a tea light in so it illuminates it. 
 Leo from Dreaming Tree recommends http://www.amazon.com/RGB-Submersible-LED-Lights-Centerpiece/dp/B00FS7N0J8/ref=pd_sim_60_3?ie=UTF8&refRID=1MBV20Z27012WFVS45VW&dpID=51eEJ9ihNtL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_ to light his projects up but you can use whatever battery-powered light you'd like.

 He also has YouTube videos to show you how to make his projects.
