Lots of bright, Spring time colours to play around with. The Gallery is going to look beautiful this week!!
I was looking through my patterned papers for inspiration and came across the perfect piece. And I had some new shaker sequin combo's I hadn't used, so a shaker card was born:
I was a wee bit naughty and added some gold (don't tell anyone) but it went so perfectly with the sequins I couldn't resist!!
I started off by die-cutting the shaker frame twice from white CS. I glued them together with the piece of acetate between them, for extra strength. As some of the beads were quite thick, I added two rows of foam tape to the back of the frame. After cutting the patterned paper to fit, I poured the sequins on the back of the acetate and pressed the paper over top, sealing the shaker. I adhered a piece of gold patterned vellum to the card front and adhered the shaker over top. Pretty colours with an uplifting message....brilliant!
The frame die is from Pretty Pink Posh. The acetate is from Project Life-Becky Higgins. The shaker sequin mix is from Papervine. The patterned paper is from American Crafts 'Serendipity' and the gold vellum from My Minds Eye.
I have two challenges I would like to enter:
Simon Says Stamp - Wednesday Challenge (Anything Goes)
AAA Card Challenge # 53
You have until next Wednesday to link your projects to the Just Add Ink challenge. And the rest of the Design Team have some stunning cards on the blog to inspire you. I hope you have time to join us and I can't wait to see what you created this week!!
