Gingersnap Creations - 3-D Challenge
This is a shadowbox I created for the Random Redhead Challenge at Gingersnap Creations where the theme is 3-D. There are actually 3 layers in my crackle-painted shadowbox, the back is an embossing powder resist piece of watercolor paper using clear EP and Glimmer Mists in Creme de Rouge, Pashmina (such a yummy, purple color!!) and Moonlight, then there's text stamped onto an acetate piece which also holds the photostamp image, and finally a strip of acetate stamped with "Dream" that is backed with more of the background paper and holding my silk flowers in the corner. You always lose something in photographing the acetate, but I like how you can create a layered piece with it. Stamps: background swirl - Hero Arts, text on large acetate piece - Oxford Impressions, photostamp - Art Declassified, word on acetate strip - One Stamp Dreamer.
