Bride of Frankenstein Shadowbox

OK... I pretty much cased this project I found in one of my Cricut magazines. I thought it was so fun and wanted to put it in my guest bathroom. Of course I added many of my own touches, cuts, paper, etc.

I created it using an 8X10 shadowbox purchased at Michaels. I used both my Cricut and my Cameo cutting machines.

I used a ton of Pop Dots on the project for several layers of dimension, sometimes using three Pop Dots on top of each other to really raise it up.

The window frame is a Memory Box die, the curtains were cut freehand, the chandelier, candelabra  and spiderweb were cut with the Chic and Scary Cricut cartridge, the Bride of Frankensteins head and the bath tubs claws were cut with Happy Hauntings, the towel was cut with Paper Doll Dress Up, The potion bottles were cut with Frightful Affair and the bath tub, the bubbles and her legs were cut using a Silhouette Studio cut file.

For her curlers I cut small strips of black and pink paper, rolled them up and glued them to her hair.

Supplies used: card stock - white, vanilla, tan, 2 shades of green, purple, yellow,orange, pink, red, gray, black; patterned papers - Echo Park and Little Yellow Bicycle; Window Memory Box Die; Chic and Scary, Happy Hauntings, Frightful Affair, Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridges; Silhouette Studio cut files; Orange Stickles, brads - Making Memories; clear Skittles; ribbon - my stash; Pop Dots; 8 X 10 shadowbox - Michaels

Have a fabulous day!!
