Pure Innocence Shadow Box

We created this shadow box as a Christmas gift for one of our friends.  She is a fan of My Favorite Things Pure Innocence stamps (and so are we).  This was a fun project to create.

We started off by painting the shelf with a couple coats of black acrylic paint then spray sealing it when it was dry.  The cardstock squares were then applied with Modge Podge with one coat underneath and two coats on top.

Each girl was stamped on a white square, colored with copic markers then paper-pieced with patterned paper.  They were then glued on to a piece of chipboard and cut out after dried. Foam squares were placed on the back then put into the frames.

The wording was done on the computer (fonts Arial Narrow and Pea Alicia Script) then printed out on cream cardstock. A die was used to cut it out.  A glue pen was used to trace around the edge of the cut out then glitter was adhered.  Foam squares were placed on the back then put into the frame.  The dog has a double layer of foam squares so that it is popped higher than the die.  The crystals were attached with liquid glass.
