Noah's Ark

This is my third entry for the Spring Challenge over at SVGCut's facebook page.  You had to use something from one of their spring kits or collections so I used the egg from the Poplar Street Tulips kit to make my ark and one of the birdhouses from the Spring Birdhouses kit for the house on top.  In person the ark truly looks like wood and it's very sturdy.  It would make a great centerpiece for a baby shower or a kids birthday.  I put some candy in mine as the lid comes off and the little cuddly animals are glued on.

For the wood look, I embossed paper with the distress embossing folder and cut it to 1/2" strips and inked each piece.  I applied each paper strip onto the egg all around and used a marker for the nail marks.  I did the same to the floor, inside of the ark and the house.  The animals are from the Cuddle Animals I & II collections and the Tropical Friends Collections.  The door and windows are from the Strawberry Lane Collection.  The waves and rainbow are both free files from SVGCut's Blog.

Here is the candy inside with the lid off.
