Shadow Box card.

Hello everyone

While doing a bit of blog hopping I came across a gorgeous blog with some fab pop up cards.  Arte Banale had also done a tutorial for a shadow box card that I took inspiration from.  Link is here

I used a Hunkydory stamp set called pretty princesses and stamped with Stazon.  I coloured them onto watercolour card with clean colour Kuretake markers and a water brush.

The background layer was water-coloured with tumbled glass distress ink, and I used a 'Joy' die of clouds too (although it is difficult to see them behind the castle!)

I then layered them up onto the tabs inside the card for dimension.  Sorry about the shadows on the photos, I couldn't get a good shot without the flash, which meant I had shadows behind....

The good thing about this card is that it folds flat into a 6 x 6 envelope for posting.  I just loved making it!

I hope you like it too.
