Shadow box

I created a little scene on a card and Donna is hosting this month's 3D challenge on StampTV, which is to recylce/reuse, and I had this shadow box that I purchased at a garage sale ages ago so decided to put it in it instead. Here it is:

I like how this turned out. It was hard getting a picture without a glare though and you can still see a bit of glare here and there. That's suppose to be a moon rising (bad moon rising..ha!) over the ocean...can you see the craters? LOL! The scene is all sponged except after sponging the sand part, I took a stipple brush and stippled more colors into it to make it look more realistic. I saw some really cool sand stuff somewhere...need some of that!

Ok, that's about it for today! Have you been seen the little 'snippets' on Gina K's blog the last 3 days? She is giving little sneak peaks of the new release stamps next week! I will tell you this much...they are awesome! As usual, the illustrators have outdone themselves! Sooo I am stalking my mailman for sure tomorrow!!

I am freeeee!! No more watching grandson for awhile! I need a break...seriously, lol! Love him to death but all day and night is ROUGH since I hadnt done it in like 25 years, rofl. Have a wonderful Thursday! and Yay! tomorrow is FRIDAY!

This is fantastic Cat....and would look awesome in my beach themed bathroom *hint, hint* LOL. I love the distressed look on the frame. This really is art, suitable for framing!
