CAS-ual Fridays

In thinking up a "texty" idea for the first challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays Challenge # 1, the idea of an alphabet chicken noodle soup ran through my head and I decided to go with it. The bowl turned out to be the hardest thing to make believe it or not, because I wanted it to have a bit of depth. I ended up making the bowl by making a 3 inch circle, cutting a 2 inch circle in the center of the 3 inch circle, then in that circle with the hole in the middle I made a straight cut from the inner edge to the outer edge and overlapped those two ends about the fourth of a inch, used adhesive to keep that together, adhere that to the card using dimensional tape then placed the soup inside the bowl. How did I make the seam disappear? I garnished the bowl of soup with some herbs right where the seam is.  I shrinked this tree with the help of my silhouette to look  more like Rosemary which happens to be my favorite herb. I hope all that made sense. The noodles were created with punctuation marks and signs from the Smitty's ABC's and Hero Arts fanciful swirl alphabet set that has swirly letters.

Thanks for stopping by.
