Inside Shadow Box Card Using Digital Stamps

Hello! It is time for a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs. For this challenge, the theme is Dots +/Or Stripes +/Or Checks. I incorporated all of these in my card. 

My card is inspired by Jennifer McGuire's Inside Shadow Box Card. Her blog is my go to blog for inspiration. She explains her card process really well. I highly encourage you to check her blog out.

I am using images from one of our challenge sponsors. I printed the images on Neenah Solar White cardstock. I colored the images with Copic markers. I added details to the mermaid tails using Sakura pens. I used a white Gelli Roll pen on the green mermaid tail and an orange Souffle pen on the orange mermaid tail. I used a yellow Souffle pen on the star on the mermaid's hair. I accented the eyes using the white Gelli Roll pen. After the coloring, I fussy cut the images leaving a small white border around it.

Working on the shadow box, I am using a heavy weight Neenah Desert Storm cardstock. To follow the theme, I am using patterned papers from Doodlebug Kraft In Color 6x6 paper pad. I die cut the window using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Square die on the kraft cardstock. I die cut the next large square die on the pink diagonal striped patterned paper to have a matted window look. I did not like the look so I went ahead and used the square frame but instead of adhering it straight on, I rotated it. 

I heat embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. The sentiment is from Ellen Hutson Totally Random Sayings Vol. 1 stamp set. 

For the back of the window, I chose a dotted patterned paper. I stamped bubbles on this paper using white pigment ink. Too subtle so I blended the white pigment ink on this paper using a stencil. I still am not convinced on its look, so I ended up adding Pretty Pink Posh confetti sequins to the background. 

I adhered the mermaids to the front of the window, adding a scrap cardstock to the inside window for support.

I closed the inside shadow box as instructed on the Jennifer's video.

For the front of the card, I adhered a checkered patterned paper to the front. I die cut the same pink striped patterned paper that I used on the inside using a Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die. I heat embossed the sentiment. The first line of the sentiment is a My Favorite Things stamp, and the bottom line is from a Lawn Fawn stamp which I masked since I only need that part of the sentiment. I added the dots using a white Sakura Gelli Roll pen. I added two layers of scrap paper underneath this sentiment panel, then adhered it to a kraft cardstock to matte it. I adhered this to the front panel. I decided to keep the front simple so the wow! would be reserved for the inside of the card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations on the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
