This month's stamps have been so much fun to play with!!  I used the digi version of Just Go Fishing to create a shadow box.

To start my project I cut the shadow box using my Silhouette.  Next I took the back panel and created my sun rise using Tim Holtz's Rays stencil and distress inks.

Spiced Maramalde ink was used to start the sun rays.

I then filled in the remaining areas with Mustard Seed distress ink and blended well with the blending tool.

The stencil was removed and the bottom area was inked using Tumbled Glass distress ink to create the water. (Sorry I forgot to take a picture). I brushed brushable  glue onto the background and covered it with Sparkling Snow glitter for the beautiful sparkle.  Once the background for my box was completed I printed the image and had my Silhouette cut it out.  The tree branches and cattails was also cut using the Silhouette. 

The branch was inked using Memento Espresso Truffle and Bamboo Leaves.  After inking I stamped the leaves using the Seasonal Tree stamp set.

The cattails were also inked using the same ink.  The sentiment was printed and placed on top of a green pull ribbon.On the edges of the shadowbox I placed Green Apple Crystal Drops for embellishments. Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the cattails using brushable glue.

The grass was die cut using the Outdoors Edges from Elizabeth Craft.  The branches were die cut using Sizzix's Branches and Leaves dies.  For the little flowers they were die cut using Spellbinder's Hydrangea die.  I inked the edges and placed small drops of Green Apple Crystal Drops.  The small dragonflies are brads.  

We hope you enjoy the New Reveal Blog Hop as much as we do.  Thanks for joining us and remember to comment on each of the Designers' blogs to be eligible for the Grand Prize.
