It's no great Diorama

In fact it's quite cute and dinky well I think so. I was inspired by Olga from Poppystamps design team as she made a diorama along with so many other fab projects which although could be cards are like little landscape masterpieces in card and paper. 

I decided to have a play with some of my dies as I am loving learning and trying new techniques combining with and without stamps and this is what I came up with. 

I cut 3 stitched rectangle frames from white card , and cut some strips that I scored to concertina for the sides which can fold so if I wanted the diorama could fold flat in an envelope for posting. I created my different scenes on each of the frames. The foreground I used a grass die , some baby bunnies and butterflies. 

 Behind the bunnies I added green vellum and added a meadow and added a mum and baby deer. 

 The second frame I added a second meadow a little taller and two more deer one a stag with antlers so now I had a big happy family. 

 I used green vellum for the meadows as this allows light to pass through but you could do each layer with just white card if you wanted to.

On the back of the final frame I added green vellum cut with a cloud die to form a tree line then a  full rectangle of white vellum and created my sky scene using birds and  a hot air balloon.

Here you can see all 3 layers , I took the photo on a slight angle tp show this.

Here you can see the diorama with the light behind it, only sunlight but you could use artificial light of some kind too.

I would like to enter this project into the following challenges:-

Allsorts -use 2 or more dies

HLS - anything goes with dies

city crafter - frame it

TTCRD - anything goes

Deep Ocean challenges - dies,chipboard and punches
