I wanted to create a floral card with a wintery feel…and at the last minute I decided to make it a shaker, too! 😉
I started by stamping the GORGEOUS floral stamp from Hello Lovely onto watercolor paper with versamark and heat-embossed it with silver sparkle embossing powder. I stamped it several times using different parts of the stamp to cover the entire panel. Then I colored it with zig clean color real brush markers. I used various shades of blues and greys to color the image and convey an icy, wintery scene. Once the panel was colored I went over some of the flowers with my spectrum noir clear sparkle brush to add shimmer to the petals.
Next I die-cut the word ‘Joy’ from the upper left part of the panel and backed it with acetate. I added a double layer of foam mounting tape around the word and filled it with sparkling clear sequins and white, silver, and clear beads. I sealed up the shaker and finished my card by adding the rest of the sentiment heat-embossed onto dark blue cardstock with silver embossing powder.
I’m really happy with the way it turned out…I hope it reminds you of winter!
