Monochromatic Shadow Box for RRR Challenge 93

Hello, all you fabulous ribbon loving peeps!  Today marks the beginning of a new challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon!  I’ve prepared this monochromatic shadow box
for RRR Challenge 93, because it’s a monochromatic challenge!  Makes sense, right? 
Here’s the theme for this challenge:

Monochromatic Theme & Ribbon
  (pick one main color/color family and you can add a colored image) 

I wanted to create something other than a card for this challenge, so I broke out one of my hoarded Shadow Box Die Cuts from the amazing Vicki Chrisman.  She designed these dies for Accu-Cut, and you can links to a tutorial on how to assemble and use them HERE.  You can find links to the shadowbox dies she’s designed HERE.    If you wish to purchase only the shadow box kits, you can find them HERE.  And now, here is my monochromatic shadow box
for RRR Challenge 93:

I love the dimensional and interactive elements of these shadow boxes.  I used lots of ribbon from RRR and those precious WOC two tone blue sweetheart blossoms too.  Here are the links to the ribbons I used in this project:

Amelia White Crochet Lace
Leaves and Berries on Blue Mist Satin
Sheer with Embossed Center Light Blue
Diamond Satin Capri Blue
Silver Metallic Baker’s Twine
Bright Hemp Cord Set (just the blue hemp, which was frayed)

Most of them came from the February Ribbon Club Assortment, so if you have that in your stash, you’re all set!

I love how dimensional this is.  It stands on its own little feet, like a vintage armoire, and opens to reveal a dimensional tri-fold interior. I used shabby embossing powders to create the background, Tim Holtz’ new bird stamps along with Crafty Secrets Sing for Joy. Let’s look at some photos of the shadowbox as it opens up.  You can click on the photos to see more details.

You can see little metal bits that I altered to match, and the frayed hemp cord is attached to a wee pocket tag. And of course, I had to add feathers!

The paper is all from Tim’s Shabby Chic stack.

And I had to build a box to hold the shadowbox because it was so dimensional.  More gorgeious ribbon and stamping on the front of the box.
