HIMCR #215 - Favorite Team Colors

HIMCR # 215 - Favorite Team Colors

The sponsor is Pickled Potpourri!
 
The giveaway is a $7 Gift Certificate to Pickled Potpourri!
 

I am not a football fan, but I LOVE hockey and my favorite team is the Detroit Red Wings who's colors are: red & white at home, white & red away from home with a bit of black thrown in.

 
The images are all from Pickled Potpourri's, "Under the Sea" set of digi stamps.
 
The underwater scene is gelato's on watercolor paper with a bit of glitter paint on the sandy part and starfish. It is hard to see the glitter paint but it is there.
 
 

After coloring the background, (I won't lie, this is my second background the first one was not the correct size for the box because I didn't plan this out very well, I didn't decided on the shadow box idea until after I had completed the first background), I trimmed it a bit to fit the box.

The box is from the Silhouette store and cut with my Cameo, there were other pieces for the original shadow box but all I really wanted was the box so the other pieces were deleted.

I also decided that it needed a window, with all of the dust in the air in Arizona I didn't want to leave it open. I stamped 2 dolphins on the clear acetate I used for the window, colored and fussy cut all of the fish, plants, lobster, etc. and added some black enamel for the eyes. I adhered them to the background with foam squares.

I used white to cut the box out with then added some red Bazzill Basics and a piece of black and white ribbon around the sides and some enamel dots to the top.
