This morning I saw this amazing card that Jayme posted. Seriously, go check it out. Talk about GORGEOUS!! I've never really seen a shadow box card before and since she raved about how easy it was I figured I'd give it a go. Those that know me well(Holly,lol) know that I like to stay safe with my cards and dont really venture out of my comfort zone very often, and when I do the results can often be, well, interesting, LOL.
I messed up on the scoring a bit, and since I dont have a Circle Cutter I used my Coluzzle and my circle ended up a *tad* closer to the left, but overall I think I managed my first shadow box card all right. I'll have to try it a few more times to get the feel for it!
I used the latest color challenge over at Splitcoaststampers but I had to get a bit creative when I realized I didnt have the ink for Baja Breeze or Marina Mist. How the heck did that happen? I could have sworn I had those ink colors but I guess now I need to order them! Anyway, the colors for the challenge are Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery and Marina Mist. I added the flowers stamped in Daffodil Delight and Cherry Cobbler for a little extra something and put some Dazzling Diamonds on them also.
