Easter Shadow Box!

 O-my-goodness! I think I'm going to design a most wanted poster for my energy! Where has it gone!?! Is anyone else missing theirs too?

My usual work/craft time is at night, after I put the boys to bed, but the last few days I've been crawling in right after them... Anyways, last night I forced myself to stay up, so I could share today's project with you!

An Easter Shadow Box! I love creating these as MDS makes it so easy to do.

Although my design incorporates a ton of different elements, majority are from the downloads: Everything Easter and Blossom Abound. Perfect for Easter art!
My main colour theme is Crisp Cantaloupe, Barely Banana, Pistachio Pudding and Soft Sky and instead of black I used Soft Suede for outlines and other key components.

I made my design to fit into an 8.5 X11" shadow box frame, which I purchased in a 3 pack at my local big box craft store. The reason for the shadow box is because I actually make my picture "3D" after it's printed. To do this, I print my design several times, cut individual elements and layer them using Stampin' Dimensionals. In today's sample, I need six printed copies. One for the base and five to cut.

I also add "in real life" product to help my design pop. I used, Rhinestones, Pearls, Brights Candy Dot along with a Brad Base and Very Vintage Designer Brad.

Well, I hope you liked today's project, I'm sorry the pictures aren't the greatest... I'll try and take a picture of it on the next sunny day. My light box doesn't have much room to it and really limits my picture positions, but hopefully you get the idea! Make sure to click on my photo's for a larger view too!

Have a great day and please see below for a complete list of digital supplies!
Happy Creating!
