Bottom View of Shadow Box Card.



Mothermark's tea parties go from Tuesday to Tuesday. So technically you can never be late, good thing because it's Thursday and I am just arriving. Visiting the Queen at Winsor Castle and I'm late. I started this card Tuesday evening as I was approaching the end, I added dimensional glaze, and it changed my colors. Oh NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So I started over last night and am just now done. I wanted my card to be special for this special tea party Cindy!

I wouldn't miss this one, it is Mothermark's 1 year of Teapot Tuesday Tea Parties and she has blog candy Check it out: http://mothermark.blogspot.com/search/label/Teapot%20Tuesday%20Cards
For my card I took inspiration from the theme of this teapot, since it is from Winsor Castle in England, I made a shadow box card featuring my mode of transportation, a carriage of course. How else would one arrive to a party with the Queen? This adorable carriage is from the set ROSEBUD PRINCESS from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS LLC: http://www.newcleardollarstamps.com/servlet/StoreFront
I saw this paper the other day at my local scrapbooking store and fell in love with the colors and thought it would be perfect for my carriage. So that is what inspired my colors. I wanted it to look rich and regal for royalty of course. This is my first time making a shadow box card, I've been wanting to make one for awhile, and thought this was a perfect way to showcase this lovely carriage. Here is the tutorial I followed for making this shadow box card: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/shadow_box_card/ I used watercolor paper and love its texture. I stamped the carriage five times, one on the card and four on separate watercolor and embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut out and layered to get the dimension I wanted.

I chose the sentiments happily ever after and decided to make a wedding card. When I was working with it, I wanted to make the sentiment flow along the circle window. I got this idea to make these banners like, they seemed to fit the theme and font of the sentiment. So I cut out two more circles from watercolor paper, one the size of the window and one two sizes larger, creating a ring that I stamped the sentiment on. I cut it the length I wanted and cut the v shapes on the ends and use a dauber to distress with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I moved it down over the window slightly even with the bottom of the v and popped up with dimensionals. I love how it turned out even though it took forever.

Thank you for visiting.

This is beautiful. I can't believe that you watercolored it so many times. I have a hard time doing one. Love the look. I have not tried one of these cards in so long. Great job.
