February Giveaway Winner and getting creative with shadow boxes

Candy Box Crafts Shadow Box and Molly Blooms Stamps

A huge thanks to all who left a comment on our February Giveaway post .  I had a great time reading them all.  Random.org chose number 178 as our lucky winner this month and the lucky lady who left comment no 178 was SusieQ3.  Congratulations Susie.  Please would you mail your address to me at mycreativespirituk@gmail.com and I'll get your goodies in the post to you.  

Its been a while since I've got out my Copics and Molly Blooms stamps but had a really chillaxing time earlier this week getting creative molly blooms style with one of the Candy Box Crafts shadow boxes.  I used the 6 1/2" one to showcase this country scene of Molly on a picnic.  Once I'd chosen the papers I wanted to use, and the colours for the images all I had to do was a bit of colouring in. I'd forgotten how time flies when your colouring and how long it takes. There's over 35 elements in the picture some large and some tiny weeny like the cherries and strawbs!  I started layering from the back of the box and  used small chipboard squares stuck together in stacks to support each of the pieces, increasing the number used in each stack as I built up the scene.   It was a great project to work on and one that would make a pretty picture for a little girls bedroom.  

Here's what the box looked like before I started and some close ups of my finished one too:
