Shadow Box Picture Frame

Hi everyone this is Monica! I created a photo frame with different May Art ribbons and PSA Stamps. 

I wanted to created a scene to go along with the photo and stamp set so I made a palm tree and added some sand using more May Arts ribbon.  The palm tree was easy to make with wired ribbon because you can pull the wires to create a crinkled look and then shape it.  The wire inside the ribbon helps to keep its shape.

I used the seashell stamp and added embossing powder to give it a glossy look which accents the sentiment

Then I stamped the crab on the ribbon created sand pile

Such a super cute way to create a scene inside a shadow box picture frame – the possibilities are endless with May Arts Ribbon!
