If you get lost, come back here for the complete list.

Here is what I created….


My original plan was to create a card, but as I started working I decided to create a shadow box with a Ribba frame from IKEA.

CutCardStock Materials used:
Curious Metallics Cryogen White
Curious Metallics Chocolate
Pop Tones Razzelberry
Cougar White Super Smooth 80#
Great Impression Stamps: 
H253 Parrot Tulips
H116 Empty Garden Pots
E748 Friends

I had a vision of placing the Parrot Tulips (H253) in the Empty Garden Pots (H116), so I used the MISTI and a vartiey of masks to create my finished image. 


I chose to use Cougar White Super Smooth 80# paper for my image. I have found it works well when coloring with Copic Markers. I also stamped several additional images of just the pots and tulips. I then colored the images. I used E13,E07, E09, G03, G05, G07, G09, RV21,RV23, RV25, and R29.

SB.12.W SB.3.W SB.13.W

I added color to the sky with chalk.


Then I cut out the extra images and layered them using Foam Dots.



I then layered the image with Curious Metallic in Cryogen White and Chocolate. I added a piece of lace to the Pop Tone Razzelberry. I used Foam Dots to attach the image.


I stamped Friends (E116) on a piece of Cryogen White. I layered it with Pop Tones Razzelberry and Curious Metallics Chocolate.


I painted some wood strips white to separate the layers in the frame.



I really love how it turned out. Please leave a comment. (I have been told there are some prizes.) Now head on over to Ruza’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other Design Team members blogs for more inspiration and leave them a comment for them.

Have a great day!
