Sliding and Smiling

Whew!  Finished my card for Event #3 of the MFT Creative Olympics: Crafty Biathlon.  In this event, we are to choose one technique and one card type from their list of options.  I chose masking and slider.

The flowers were masked and colored with Copics.  The chameleon was stamped with Staz-On ink onto acetate.  After cutting out the word 'smile' and heat embossing the top sentiment, I popped up the panel with foam tape.  The word die cut was also cut out of foam, but the negative was only adhered to the top panel so the element could easily move through the channel.   I created the slider element using a brad.  After poking the brad through the flower and acetate, it was secured very loosely through a small piece of green cs on the back side of the panel.  The next photos just show the chameleon sliding around and changing colors.
