A shadow box for Felix

Hi there,
I have a different kind of project to share with you today. One of my friends recently had a baby and I wanted to make her and her little man Felix, a little something special to go in the nursery. Mama Elephant’s ‘Up and Away’ set came to the rescue again. I cannot get enough of this cute set!

For Felix | Marion Vagg

I sponged the clouds by making my own template and using several distress ink colours. The name is made from a really old set of rub-ons that I have had in my stash for at least 10 years. The whole scene was placed in a shadow box that I bought from Ikea (gotta love that shop). I decided to include Mr Squeaky Mouse in the photo, much to the delight of my daughter πŸ™‚

Stamps: Mama Elephant Up and Away Stamp set

Card: X-Press It Blending card

Ink: Memento – Tuxedo Black ink, Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean

Other Supplies: Copic Markers (I don’t seem to take note of the colours sorry!), Foam dimensionals, Tombow Mono-Multi liquid adhesive, Making Memories rub-ons – Destination small black

I had so much fun making this, that I think I just may have to make some more!
