Let's jump right in and talk about today's card. I used the Studio Calico December Park Avenue card kit for one more video. I took inspiration from a card that Carissa Wiley posted to the Studio Calico member gallery. I just love how she transformed the black and white floral paper!
I cut down a piece of the floral paper to 4 inches square and pulled out my watercolors and added some quick colors to the paper. I didn't need to do any shading because the paper is all ready shaded. As I applied the watercolors the shading showed through. I used my die cutting machine to cut a circle out of the hashtag paper from the kit. I believe the circle was right around 2 1/2 inches.
I trimmed down more of the patterned paper for a sentiment strip and used Versafine Onyx Black ink and some Ranger clear embossing powders to create my sentiment. This is probably one of my favorite sayings! I just love it!
I used foam tape around the circle window to make sure none of my beads or sequins escaped. I used a trick from Jennifer McGuire and glued down some sequins onto my piece. That way when the card stands upright there's still sequins all around the shaker, rather than just at the bottom. Then I filled up my shaker with Studio Calico and Doodlebug sequins and some gold seed beads.
That's all! Soon I will be showing you all of the crafty additions Christmas brought to my craft room! Santa was good to me!! :) Thanks for stopping by!
