Mixing it up with Alicia!

Good morning, Alicia with you today. I have created a lovely shadow box for my niece.

I did not intend for it to be monochromatic, however, after using Jade PowderPuff Chalking Ink to color the outside scroll work I searched my Quick Quotes paper collection for matching papers. I found some from several different collections that came together perfectly.

I used my PIXMA iP8720 13x19 Wireless Printer to not only print the photograph but also the sentiment. I found this great quote when I searched the web. I just copied it, changed the font and printed! I don't like to waste the good Canon paper, so I included several other quotes and a photo on the pages for use later. 
I used two different inking techniques on my project either of which could be used for the August Quick Quotes Challenge: to Use Colored Inks.
  1. Inking wood or chipboard
  2. Inking edges to create dramatic shading
I cut dozens of pieces for flowers using a die set. I inked all the edges with the same Jade PowderPuff Chalking Ink as the outside of the box. I shaped the flowers as I inked them.
After cutting the papers to fit the inside of the box, I added the flowers around the edges.  After adhering the quote and the flowers, I finally added some pearls and bling to finish it off.
