Before you hurry off to see the other amazing creations that the DT have made.. Here is one I created for the hop using the Reel Time new set! I love seeing movies, and totally thought we needed this as crafty girls..Soooo.....
 I used the film strip and made it into a movie count down.. this would be fun to use for a birthday count down as well.. I colored it in using copic markers c7,c4,c3,c1 and I used the y17 to splatter yellow behind on the background I really love how it turned out.. I bent it to give a "real" effect.. I can't wait to try this out on some acetate and some browns to....
