For one of my recent swaps I created a pinup Bride of Frankenstein Shadow box for my partner.  It turned out so well that I wanted to make more of them like this, and this one is my second attempt at creating a shadow box.

This one was for a family friend that was feeling a bit down lately, so I wanted to cheer her up.  She is really into zombies, and I found this nice image of a zombie chick on the internet. I printed the image out in black and white, and colored her in.

I then went about decorating her room, putting up wall paper and posters.  Creating her fainting couch and window from scratch.

So here is the finished product titled Alas Poor Yorick, I chewed him well!

Here is two close ups of the top and bottom.  I used foam dots to give it a layered and depth look (really hard to tell in a 2 dimensional picture), and I liked the skull sticker I found to use as a throw pillow.

Here is the Bride of Frankenstein shadowbox I made for kittykill in our Psychobilly Swap

My wife still wants to know where her shadowbox is. Grin

What will curiosity get you?

These are wonderful! I love how brightly coloured you made the zombie girl and the bride of frankenstein. All the little details on the walls are wonderful.

I have to say if my husband was gifting these, I'd be elbowing him in the ribs asking about the whereabouts of my shadowbox too! Cheesy

I like the Zombie shadowbox including the caption. I noticed the 3Dness right away. Great job!
