Instructions to come....

I apologize for the glitch in my instructions, but they are finally fixed and I can share how I made this shadowbox.


For the Zinnia, I used the photo instructions supplied on the back of the packaging. I used sponge duabers to create some petal gradation with Triumphant Red and Antique Moss. A deeper pass of color on the larger petals was done with Berry Red Colorbox Petal Point Classics Set, and also on the smaller set with Putty. Then it was time to glue.


Here's the Zinnia close up.


For the antiqued background I started with the Stampendous Creative Palette Rectangles larger palette in the set. Using DecoArt paints in Snow White, Turquoise Blue, Antiqued Green and Toffee.


Once the paint was dry I embossed with the 3D Shady Allure Sculpted Embossing Folder. I inserted the monoprint paint up into the folder, checking that when it was close the Spellbinders logo is on top.


To bring out the luscious 3-D design from the folder I sponged DecoArt Gel Stain in Walnut Noyer.


The detail really came out nicely with the gel, but left the variation in the monoprint come through.

As a nest for the Zinnia, I cut out the larger Triple Tear die and sponged around the edges with Mudslide from the Colorbox Petal Point Classics Ink Set.


The Triple Tear was antiqued with the Encrusted Jewel Technique (YouTube video) using Spoonful of Snow Kit, which uniquely is heat set from the back side of the paper.

The pieces were all glued together with Scrapbook Adhesive Medium Dodz and 3D Foam Squares.

To lighten up the background I used the spatter brush with Snow White acrylic paint around the edges of the background and once or twice on the flower.


The last to be added is Penned Love in Mudslide in from the Colorbox Petal Point Classics Ink Set. Foe some antique it was sponged very lightly with Putty and Mudslide. A few bits and baubles are added to bring a nice foundation to the piece.

You can continue with some of the Stampendous Design Team today and if you haven't stopped by the company blog's today they have a special sign-in to be eligible for today's grand pize. Each of these stops I've mentioned can be taken by the links below.

  16. Wow! I am impressed and educated. Can't believe how you colored the flower with ink-it's stunning. I don't have any of the current coloring tools-but ink I've got. I have to give it a try. Will not tell you how many unmade shadow boxes I have in my stash. Really have to get brave and start work on some. Thank you so much for this beautiful inspiration.
