When I was in the store looking for some things to use for my first Artisan Award challenge, I came across this cute little shadow box frame. It fits like a wallet size photo, and I thought how fun would that be to do something with it. It did not follow the theme that I was doing for my challenge, so I just set it aside for something else. After I got all my stamping done today to send to Stampin' Up! I thought I would see if the Adirondack (yeah the spell checker did not correct me) chair would fit. So I stamped it on watercolor paper, colored it up and cut it out. I used dimensionals to pop it up on some textured white paper. I really like it but want to use different colored textured paper, but not sure what yet.
Stamp Set: Peace Within
Ink: Jetblack Stazon, Creamy Carmel, Going Gray, Bashful Blue, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Mustard
Paper: Whisper White Textured, watercolor paper
Misc: Rub-ons Chit Chat, dimensionals, little shadow box frame, aqua painter
So as I was taking the picture I kept getting a glare on the glass, I tried moving the lamp, I tried standing different, cause sometimes you could see me reflect in the glass, so at least sitting it on the black cardstock helped.
I do think that putting a different paper behind the chair will be cooler looking, and I will play with it some more, and show you what I do.
As I was trying to take the glass out cause I thought if I just took a picture without the glass I would not have the glare, I cracked the little black frame, so I have to go get another one.
So I just left it as is, glare and all.
I also did my swap card using the same set, and I will show you that card tomorrow, don't ya love it when I tease?
Don't forget that today starts the special limited edition mini-kit so you can become a Demonstrator for only $85.00. Can you believe it? That is a super deal! I just saw the new Holiday mini catalog, and as a Demonstrator we can start to pre-order out of it on the first of August…that alone should get you excited.
