Couture Creation - Framed Shadow Box

Hello there everyone is it my turn again for show and tell at
Today I have created a Framed Shadow Box, using the
Romantique collection Embossing folders - Annalee .
I created the outside of this frame with this embossing folder.

Firstly apply some foil tape sheet to some kraft cardstock 
then placed it inside the
and embossed with manual embossing machine.

Mitre the corners of each foil strip and assemble them on a piece of black cardstock
to create a square frame. Like shown below.

Apply a combination of Black, Brushed Pewter & Tarnished Brass Paint all over the Embossed foil, rubbing with a cloth very gently. 
It might require a few coats to get the look you want, then leave to dry.

Cut out the centre square and attach a small box behind the hole
to create a shadow box effect.

Decorate the outside of frame with flowers, leaves & 
also place a small nest inside the
Shadow Box.

Sorry Adriana, I'm having a few problems with blogger but, hopefully, this time it will work properly. I love your shadow box, it's a totally awesome project. Love the metal embossing and that cute little birds nest. Really gorgeous!! ox
