La La Land Krafts–Day 4 Release- Country Style Shadow Box

I am very, very happy to be back with La La Land Crafts for
one more post for their new release which includes  8 new Stamps, 7 new Dies, and 3 new Shadow Boxes!!
Choosing a shadow box and stamps from this release was a torture! They are all FABULOUS! But…I did have to make a choice…and so…I did. This one is the Country Style Shadow Box…and not only is the frame adorable…you get tons of fun shapes to play with too. There is a milk can, an award ribbon, a wagon wheel, a cute country fence and a couple of banner shapes too.
By the way…in case you find in impossible to choose just one, Irina had a great price on a bundle of the newest shadow boxes …but only for a little while!
I tried all types of different finishes on each piece. The shadowbox and fence have a crackle finish. For the milk can, I did some heat embossing. The awards ribbon was colored with Copics and along with the wagon wheel… was given a sparkle finish with Utee and glitter.

Luka on Tractor Wheelbarrow Marci
The shadow box scene was created with two new stamps from this weeks release, Luka on Tractor and Wheelbarrow Marci which includes the Love you Bunches sentiment.
For more fun inspiration…please head over to the La La Land Crafts Blog!!
Thank you to Irina and Sandie for letting me play! You know how much fun I had!! Smile
