I used two different digis stamp sets on my project - Welcome Autumn and Sunflower.

The sentiment is from Welcome Autumn set. It is cut with Label Twenty-One die. Edges are inked with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Gold Detail EP. I also added some pearls made with Pearl Pen.

Digis are fantastic if you need mirror images. It is so easy to flip them. I printed two Sunflowers and fussy cut them out. They are colored with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I added Bronze Splendor glitter to the flowers centers with Sakura Glue Pen.

I used white Crocheted Lace Ribbon and Pearl String to decorate inside of the shadow box. Lace is adhered to the square tube made from white cardstock.

I used Faux Montage Style Embossing Powder Splatter technique to make splatters from White Detail and Gold Detail EPs on top of the tissue paper.

I printed five copies of Welcome Autumn digi stamp. I colored them with markers and fussy cut to decopage the image. It took lots of time but I'm very pleased with the result.

Here is one more photo to show the fantastic texture of tissue paper and EP splatters.

White tissue paper is colored with three spray mists: Cosmic Shimmer Mist – Perfect Lime, Perfect Pearls Mist – Perfect Pearls and Tattered Angel Glimmer Mist – Crushed Shells. I started with Perfect Lime. I actually liked color on the back side more so I added rest of the mists to this side. Tissue paper is adhered to the box base with 2 1/2" Double Sided "Tear-ific Tape"
I used Suitcase Box template as a guide for my shadow box base. Cutting and scoring is similar to the Suitcase box but measurements are different. I used 23 x 28 cm white cardstock and scored it from all sides by 1 cm, 3 cm, 4 cm and 6 cm.

Full directions of my shadow box are in the SNS Gallery here. Now continue your hop with super talented Anita Scroggins. Don't forget to leave us a little comment. We love to read them and you could be a very lucky winner of the grand prize.
