Under the Sea Light-Shadow-Box!

Hello everyone!!


I am here again. Yesterday I presented two CAS cards and today is the time to introduce you something a bit more complicated. It is Under the Sea Light-Shadow-Box.

For this project I used many products from MFT so take a look at the supply list down at the bottom of this post!

First I cut two pieces of white cardstock 19 x 17 cm. I scored on long side 2 cm on both sides. So I had two panels, each has two flaps. These flaps  give your shadow-box depth and actually help you to connect panels.

Next step was to apply Chipped Saphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Faded Jeans distress inks on both panels. After that I used Make Waves stancil and applied MFT Sweet Tooth pigment ink on whole surface. On one of the panels I die cut the window with A2 Stitched Rectangle Stax set 1 and added acetate on the back of the panel.


Now is the time to create a scene. the idea was to have an underwater castle, so I used Castle die-namics and Kraft cardstock and die cut pieces. I also apply dots with my Copic markers on every piece to get sandy look. The same technique I used for the bottom of the see and I die cut with Surf and Turf Die-namics.

I stamped all images with MFT Extreme Black ink on Neenah Soler White cardstock and colored with my Copic Markers. (Seaweeds are stamped with Limelight and Field Day Premium dye inks). All stamps sets and coordinating dies you can find in supply list down below. Small fish I stamped on the panels with black ink and added some details with white gel pen too.

After that I created the scene. Some of the images I added directly to the background, for some I used foam tape. Some of them is glued on the inside some of them outside of the box. On this way I get depth and a little more realistic look.


For a little more interesting look , I added removable small lights inside. It is difficult to show in the picture but it looks very nice when the lights are off in the room. Just like a small aquarium.
