Deeply Involved

Sunday STAMPERS.... okay... I added some stamping... LOL... I messed up a few weeks ago... and am trying to be better Hels... I really am...  LOL.. 

Today for the Sunday Stamper Challenge #322, Hels has named it ... Deeply Dippy... make it 3D plus...  so I literally did...

Even prior to looking at your outstandingly YUMMY deeply dippy canvas ... I knew what I was going to create...  Your flowers are 'dripping' down the side, over textured canvas... just lovely plus Hels... I really love it... and I have just the place to hang it... so when you are ready... I will send you my address... really love it. 

So I got to work...  it was actually Saturday night here in the USA... but I pretend that I am just staying up late and playing... in the UK mind you... 

My project had to be entirely made...  from chipboard and papers... 
so here it is...

I made a little shadow box, with a cover on it...  I am going to put it on a bedside table in one of the guest rooms in our home...  the room is accented with a peach bedspread that my Mother In Law quilted and made... it has turquoise accents in it also.. this just matches... (yes I did check the color of the birds out, prior to making this... ) 

The little birds are a clip art from Pinterest...  and the flowers, I made from Tim's Tattered floral template... the long one...  and then my favorite little flowers... (have it on my schedule today to make a few hundred of them... I go thru them so very fast..... as I love them ....)
I also made some leaves using textured paste and then cut them out for a textured look in the flowers... 

I made SURE I took a picture this week of my stamping... LOL..  I did do something that I normally don't do... I have done it... but not in a long time??? NOt really sure why... just haven't... you know about those ways... I think they are called HABITS..... bad ones but anyway I inked only part of the stamp with Olive Archival ink... an the other half with Archival ink potting soil...  love it...  I also used a crackle stamp on the Martha Stewart punched paper... 

When you open the top piece... this is what you see... DEPTH... 
The box is one inch deep... and so I did have some nice space to fill up... I added a few branches from our yard... and also I love this picture of the nest... with all the forest greens etc around it...  I added some blue flowers to tie it into the front panel... and a little fence... it was on my worktable and I just couldnt' throw it out... so it went in here...

The box is entirely covered in tim's wallflower paper... and then I used tissue tape to hold it entirely together... great feat... love that stuff for this kind of application... 

Normally I don't go looking under birds tails.. .LOL... but this is under the birds tail... it just got covered up when I glued the birds down... 

A little raffia showing thru...  and that pretty flower... love that die... 
So that is my Sunday Stamper Deeply Dippy... 
Hope you are having a nice day...
and that you enjoy what you are doing...
It is trying to rain here... and I wish it would pour... we need the rain really.... a lot of it too..
Thanks for stopping by... and see you soon... 
Love, Light and Peace...Bonnie
