Dough Globe?

Happy Friday!
Y'all know it's only 7 more shopping days til Christmas! I'm not finished but I think I need to shake up this dough globe and hope some falls out, lol. I think I've done some dashing thru the dough but I don't feel nearly as cheerful about it as this little guy looks. Too much dashing, I think.

Well, I'm not really sure how I arrived at this design, but somewhere along the line the word "shrink plastic" popped into my head. That was probably the most time consuming. Cutting out all those little plastic bills and shrinking them. I stamped them w/ Stazon on the shiny side first and colored the back sides w/ markers. And it is pretty cool to watch them shrink up. Kind of like my wallet lately, except for the cool part.

The globe part was cut with a couple of sizes of circle dies for the red and black frames and 1 large circle of acetate was attached underneath. I also cut 2 circle frames out of card board in order to have some space for the dough and Rudolph. The trees were stamped w/ a green rainbow pad and I used a glue pen and some transparent glitter all over for a little snowy sparkle. The bottom of the globe is another die cut I cut the bottom off and used a wood grain embossing folder on top then sponged a little ink over the raised parts.
The background on my 4.25 x 5.5 white card was stamped with the dough image and embossed with glittery powder. I used a red marker and a water brush to add the color to the sentiment and hand cut the arrow shape.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
