Good afternoon! I'm FINALLY able to make my post today. So sorry I'm behind, but I've been having some internet issues, and it took a while to get my service up and running this morning. We had some strong thunderstorms move through early this a.m., and my net has been down ever since!
It's time to share a fantastic and fun Peachy Keen Challenge! Angelica has challenged us to create a shadowbox with a summer theme. Well, of course I thought immediately of Swimtime Lulee, and Boogie Board Max, and these cute little animals from the Ocean Fun set, all from Peachy Keen Stamps. I created this 8x8 layout with scraps of paper, and for the sand, I crumpled up some kraft card stock until it was broken down really well, then I peeled the layers apart in two pieces, exposing the fuzzy inside of the card stock. I think that's called the faux suede technique? Maybe?? Anyway, it's a neat look. I sponged the edges of the sand with cocoa colored ink, and color spritzed it with some chocolate chip and cocoa colored ink. The adorable images were colored with Copics, and popped up on dimensionals. I scattered some real seashells in the bottom of the shadowbox, and voila! Summertime shadowbox project finished and ready for hanging! Soooo cute!!
Here's a little closer view of some of the details.
I really hope you get to play along with this challenge. These little boxes make great gifts, especially if you have a "beachy" or summer photo to add. What a sweet and special gift for anyone!! Now, you've just got to go over to the Peachy Keen Challenge Blog, to see what the rest of the talented girls have for your inspiration. Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a blessed day filled with happy stamping! Shadowbox stamping, that is!! :-)
