Shadow Frame Shrine

Here is a little shadow frame shrine I made at a recent crafty weekend with a super group of lady crafters. The frame itself was from Dusty Attic and supplied by 3D Jean . Gorgeous ornate front it has too !

The frame was completely painted with purple Dylusions matt acrylic paint on the outside and the inside lined with printed paper.  The front frame was triple heat embossed (tutorial) with antique gold embossing powder and stamped into with a text stamp which had been inked with Versamark to allow it to be released easily.  This was stuck in place with Glossy Accents.

I then used the houses 'on The Edge' TH Sizzix die and cut a strip from white card which was trimmed to fit with a tab at the bottom and coloured with cut'n'dry foam and Distress ink in victorian velvet.  The sun was made from a Nesties die and white card and again coloured with Distress ink in spiced marmalade.

The final element was made from white card stamped with black archival ink with a Unity Stamp - Suzi Blue - Queen of glitter.  She was coloured with Copic markers before trimming out with a craft knife when I removed some of the top and bottom of the image. Some Stickles glitter glue in mauve was added to the spots on her dress.

The elements were then assembled inside the frame at different levels (I added a card tab behind Suzi so she would stand) and bent her legs to fall outside the frame.

This is something I would never have done but I really enjoyed doing it and would love to do more of this type of crafting...........there were seven of these made over the weekend and all were completely different, reflecting each crafters own style.
