Shadow box – Tropical Vibes

It’s mixed media Tuesday today and I created a shadowbox! It’s a fun project, that makes a great home decor and it already decorates my craft room.

I used products from the latest release by Altenew and this is part of the blog hop! So make sure to check out the rest of the stops of lots of inspiration, to see the new products in action and to win prizes!

shadow box video tutorial

You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel

shadow box close-up photos

These amazing exotic flowers and leaves are from the Tropical Jungle Stamp Set( ALTN | SSS )

For the background I used the Banana Leaves 3D Embossing Folder( ALTN | SSS ) to get texture and dimension.

I did all the coloring using Altenew alcohol markers, the Green Fields Set for the leaves, and the Warm & Cozy Set and Red Sunset Set( ALTN ) for the flowers.

For putting together the word “tropical” I used the Tall Alpha Lowercase Die Set( ALTN | SBC | SSS )
