Assemble the shadow box.  Cut a piece of patterned paper from the Watercolour Fantasy paper and insert into the centre of the shadow box.  Cut four strips of patterned paper 3/4″ wide and adhere to the sides of the shadow box.  Die cut the small corner dies from white cardstock using the dies from the Album Tags & Accents die set and adhere to the top right and bottom left corners.  Die cut the large corner die from the Ornate Pockets & Accents die from white cardstock and add to the bottom right corner as shown.

Fussy cut all the elements out, shape and adhere over the top left of the shadow box and on the bottom right of the shadow box as shown using foam tape to add dimension.  Add netting and pearl strings under the flowers.

Silk Watercolour Fantasy

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have a card made from iCraft products – silk foam, flower and sentiment dies and a resin embellishment that I have used Prima patina pastes on.


This silk foam is really lovely to work with and does not require any heating at all.  I have used Ranger Archival inks to colour the foam to coordinate with the background paper – Watercolour Fantasy.  The pollens matched the paper and flowers perfectly.
