Mo's Dream Team Blog Hop


It's time for another fun blog hop with Mo's Dream Team and this month our wonderful Hostess is Heidy who has challenged us all to make a shaker card. The fun all starts over at Heidy's. I haven't made too many of these and am still on a steep learning curve - but I think I managed to "hide" all of my little mistakes - LOL . 

For my card I decided to celebrate the colder weather here Downunder as we head toward Winter - and the gorgeous Winter Fairy Talva was the perfect fit. I used some liquid pearls on my image so it would still be "snowing" even when the shaker bits had settled.


I used a mixture of seed beads and glitter inside my shaker - they add a fabulous texture together and the heavier beads help to stop the glitter from sticking. The same seed beads are at the centre of each of the small snowflakes around the frame and I repeated the glitter on the largest of the snowflakes in the spellbinders "stack". The gorgeous DP is by Prima.

And now it's time to head on over to Mina's marvellous blog - where I'm sure she's mastered the shaker card to perfection!

Copics used - Skintones (R20, R11, E11, E00, E000) plus YG01, YG0000, RV63, RV10, RV000, YR31, YR30, Y21, B000, B0000

Jane said...

Thanks for the Top Tip...I'll use beads or mini embllies next time as the glitter does tend to stick which is what hapenned to my 'pollen' (bless you! Sorry about the snuffles...lol). Love your rainbow colouring, may have to 'borrow' that idea too (boy! I'm stealing ideas left, right & centre today!!) Beautiful card all over xxx
