Imagination Crafts Robin Shaker Card

Hi there crafters, well Friday again and the workshop to look forward to later.  So this is my last of the Art Stamp blogs and thought I'd finish with a little shaker card.

This was done using a 6" x 6" card which I matted with black but cut a circle in the middle so the you could see through the acetate.

I stamped the Imagination Crafts Robin Art Stamp onto the acetate using Stazon ink pad then painted some of the areas using Imagination Crafts Starlights, Red for the Robin, Topaz for the large branch and Green for the leaves.  I then took a piece of white card cut slightly smaller than the black and using a circle die to cut an aperture the next size down from the black and positioned the stamped image behind to see how I wanted it to fit before cutting it down.

Before sticking it down on to the acetate, I stamped one of the greeting from the Hobby Art Poinsettia stamps set with Versafine and WOW clear embossing powder before running it through my favourite Christmas embossing folder. 

I then stuck the acetate image behind the aperture and left to dry for a few minutes. 

In the mean time I stamped the smaller of the poinsettias from the same Hobby Art set three times and painted them again using Starlights but this time watering them down slightly for a more sparkly effect.  You can see I was quite rough with the painting as I was going to decoupage them so you wouldn't see the first layer.

(I know there are only two images here I forgot to put the inner image into the photo)

The next thing was to make up the shaker so turned the card upside down and placed the 3D foam all around the outside of the card then all around the circle.  I placed some Imagination Crafts Sparkle Glitter along with some Glamour Dust into the centre, carefully removed the tape then covered the circle with another piece of acetate to secure, check for any leaks, thankfully none then mounted the card together.

The last thing was to decoupage the poinsettia and mount onto the card and added little gems to the centre of the flower.

Here's the card again with a close up of the shaker part.

Thank you for dropping by the blog today and look forward to seeing some of you at the workshop later today.

love Jan -x-
