magnolia shadow box easel card

Hi crafty friends,
 I wanted to attempt to make a shadow box on an easel card...I didnt have a template for the box, so I just had to wing it and see what happened lol....
I have used stamps from the new magnolia collection sweet rainbow and coloured them with copics.

The large flower I made using a spellbinders flower die, I then used the copic abs and sprayed it pink. I layered them all up and joined in the middle with a brad. I mixed up some pink magic mica in a mini mister and sprayed it onto the flower, I then pulled all the pieces into the middle and left to dry.

The dragonflies are magnolia doo hickeys, which I sprayed pink with the abs and put some stickles on them so they would sparkle.

Isn't she a sweetie...?

Off to do some gardening...?

I just love Hugo he is so cute!!

The leaves I punched out with a stampin up punch and the grass was cut from my cricut.

Close up of the large flower I made.

With all my love magnolia text stamp. The pink and white check paper is from the new sweet rainbow paper collection.
