I had a go at making a diorama box. Sorry for bad photos, it's been very dark and rainy here for couple of days. :(
The whole top layer of the box is a damask printed transparency. Measurements of the bottom layer are 6x7 inches, I cut the transparency to 6x9 inches and scored at 1", 2", 7" and 8". Good thing I have a Scor-It cause let me tell you, that is one heavy-weight acetate! NOTHING else would work!
The "window" was cut with Nestabilities labels and edged with bronze leafing pen which does NOT show well on photos :(
The image is Melinda With Bouquet from Whiff Of Joy, stamped in brown Versafine ink and coloured with Derwent Inktense pencils and water using very muted and almost dirty colour scheme. The oval frame behind Melinda is a stamp I found in my drawr, no idea where it's from. I just masked Melinda, stamped the frame behind her. The mat was cut with Nesties labels again and embossed with Kassie's Brocade 5x7 Cuttlebug folder.
I ruffled the ribbon slightly to form a "seat" for the image and placed Prima flowers all around it.
To finish off the box I trimmed the sides with cream and chocolate satin ribbons and stuck on some Dew Drops.
