Who knew? Seashells are Carrots!

It was fun putting a different spin on one of the Swirly Seashells Thin Cuts!  Who knew a shell double as a carrot? There are some tomatoes and sweet potatoes hiding with the shells too! You just need to look for them.  Actually, this die cut could also be an icicle or a tree ornament or more? 

For the the carrots, I cut them from Tangerine cardstock and painted them with a bit of darker orange Watercolor Paints, then added gold highlights with a Shimmer Brush.  To top them off, I cut strips of Willow cardstock and snipped the ends to be sort of fringy.  A little staple holds them in place on the carrots and looks super cute too!

  3. I told a client to use the long spiral for a turban by trimming a small face photo for the bottom!
    A really tall turban!

    1. Thanks Mary! A shell turned turban sounds like a swell idea!
