Scrap'n Stamp Canada- Watercolour Wishes Blog Hop
To turn these into cards I decided I would make shaker cards, as I liked the Picket Fence “Shake Our Tail Feathers” stamp set and knew I wanted to use it for this hop. I created a shaker by stamping the main image on acetate and I was able to use the colours from the background to highlight the feather stamp. I initially only did one card using gold embossing but soon decided one was not nearly enough so I heat embossed in black and in white to see which really stood out the most. I die cut out black frames using both my Infinity dies and my MFT stitched frames, each of the cards meassures a little bit different as all my panels varied in size when I started.
For this particular card, I created a bit larger style which measures 5 x 6¼. I die cut a frame from heavy black cardstock using my Infinity dies from Hero Arts, I die cut this three times. I then stamped the peacock feather onto the heat resistant acetate and embossed with gold powder. I trimmed the acetate down to fit under the frame. Then I sandwiched the acetate between the frames giving a little more stability. I layered the purple inked panel which measures 5¾ x 4½ onto some textured black cardstock which measures 4¾ x 6 and added that on to the base of the card with some fun foam.
Before I finished off the shaker of the card I went around the frame with some Versa Mark ink and then dipped the edges of the frame into some purple sparkly embossing powder and heat set this. I repeated the process for the sentiment as well, which I previously stamped and embossed using gold powder and die cut using my nesting circle dies. I added foam around the frame and all the sequins in to the middle of the card panel. I did add some dots of glue in places so some of the sequins would stick. I added the top of the panel and popped up the sentiment in the middle of the peackcock feather.
