Spring

We have another new Tuesday Color Challenge starting today over at The Outlawz. Ina picked the photo inspiration this week and it's so cute. She also happened to be the one who chose the image we all used too. It was absolutely perfect for this challenge. Use this image as your inspiration and tell us what inspired you.

Our wonderful Sponsor for the month of March is Sweet Pea Stamps. They have a lot of awesome stamps to choose from, both rubber and digital, from many different artists.


Here is the project that I made for the challenge. I am using Karen Middleton's Easter Daffodil for this shadowbox card. Isn't that image adorable?


This is a cut file called Butterfly Shadowbox (Design #74676) from Silhouette's online store. The second I saw it, I knew I had to use it with this awesome digital stamp we got from Sweet Pea Stamps. This is a four layer shadowbox that folds flat for mailing. There are six panels that need to be cut. I used Bazzill textured card stock for five of the layers, and designer paper from KI Memories for the background layer. It's hard to see, but it has blue and light purple mixed with white to give it a look of the sky. The butterflies come with this cut file and I used designer paper from DCWV to cut these out. The grass border is another cut file (Design #56521) from Silhouette. The sentiment is part of a cut file called Spring Has Sprung (Design #58461). I brought the chick and daffodil image into my Silhouette software and traced it. Then did a print and cut twice (I noticed that when I used two cut files glued together, it's a lot more durable). I colored the image using Copic markers (chick and daffodil - Y02, Y06, Y08; beak and feet -Y35, Y38; ladybug - R27; stems - G03, G07). All that was left to do was assemble it. There is a video link when you buy the image to see how it is assembled. Unfortunately, it was cut off at the end and instead of redoing the video, she left instructions. I added some different colored crystals onto the butterflies and the top layer to mimic the rainbow from the inspiration photo.

I really hope you get a chance to join us in this challenge this week.

I am entering this shadowbox into the following challenges:

  12. Holy Moly, Susan THIS is so stinking adorable! LOVE love love it!!!
    It DOES look very "deep", just exactly like a Shadow Box!!! So, mission accomplished, on that! How deep IS the actual "finished card", that is: before you fold it flat for mailing? It sure looks deep to me!
    Simply gorgeous! Very Spring-y!!! LOL
    I really like all the varied cardstock colors, and that cute cute "scene" you created!
    I LOVE butterflies, so you had ME at butterflies! ha.
    What a lovely Shadow Box!

  22. Wow, this shadowbox is a hit! Love the dimension and the awesome color co,bo. I am grateful that you joined us in our Challenge at Word Art Wednesday. Leaving you an inspirational verse as spoken by Jesus to them that believe from John 14:21 and it says, "Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them." A blessed week to you always.
