My Favorite Things Camp Create Day 3 was Spectacular Shakers:
For this one, I knew I wanted to use an alcohol ink background for the inside of the shaker, and I knew I wanted to do a tree. What I wound up with was not at all what I had been imagining, but that’s how I create.
First I picked some paper that went with the alcohol ink panel I chose, then I found a tree die. Cut the tree out of the paper, mounted the alcohol ink panel behind where it would be, created my shaker area with foam tape, added sequins that went with the colors in the background, stamped a sentiment on the paper and then had problems. I used some silver pigment ink to stamp with, as I wanted it to shine. Unfortunately, you couldn’t really see the sentiment. So, went over it with a Sakura Stardust pen. Following the lines of the sentiment wasn’t easy (it was also late at night and I don’t do late well). Anyway, this is what I wound up with:
Even though the sentiment is a bit wonky, I absolutely love the shaker part of it. The sentiment stamp is from the Seasonal Sentiments set and is really pretty when done correctly.
Thanks for spending some of your valuable time with me today!
