The Vicki Project part 2

Welcome back for part 2 of The Vicki Project. This is actually the first shadow box that I completed and is my favorite of the two.

The images are from Crafty Secrets' Heartwarming Vintage Images & Journal Notes booklets. The back layers of the two side panels have been dry embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.

I added gold wire antennae to the butterflies and moths that I cut from the Crafty Secrets Earthy paper pad.

I layered the petals of the flowers and added dew drops, mushrooms, and some unraveled sisal twine to finish off the shadow box panel.

This leaf vine ribbon from May Arts is one of my favorite products. The letter "B" is from the Tim Holtz distressables paper line.


The frame around this image is the cut-out from the center of the shadow box panel.

Supplies:
If you missed part 1 of The Vicki Project, you can find it here.

Thanks to Vicki Chrisman, Crafty Secrets, and Accucut for providing some of the supplies used to make these shadow box frames and a special thanks to Vicki for allowing me to play with the products.

ETA: If you would like to see more shadow box die projects, Vicki has all of them listed on her blog here.
