I've got a pretty pink shaker card today using the August My Monthly Hero kit fairies. (yesterday was the release day for this month's My Monthly Hero kit and this month is a really good one! I can't wait for it to get here!)
I die cut my frame from a piece of white wood grain cardstock cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and adhered a piece of acetate to the back. I stamped my fairies on Neenah cardstock in Memento ink and colored them with Copic markers. I added a bit of Wink of Stella shimmer to their wings and die cut them out. Next I got to work on my background, I had a piece of Neenah cardstock, cut to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and did some ink blending with Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, and Picked Raspberry Distress Inks. I added a few waterdrops at the end to make the background a little more interesting. I stamped my sentiment in Hero Arts black ink and then I brushed some cornstarch over my background so none of my shaker elements would stick to it (I imagine if you had an embossing brush tool, that would work the same, I had one years ago but have no idea what happened to it, so I just keep a little container of cornstarch and a paintbrush in my embossing drawer). I doubled up my foam adhesive strips and stuck them on the back of the clear cardstock on the wood grain frame, making a well in the window for my shaker elements. I used some Pretty Pink Posh mini iridescent hearts, some white Martha Stewart hearts and the beads and sequin mix from the My Monthly Hero kit with the snowglobe (I think it was Octobers?). Then I stuck everything together, adhered it to a white card base and glued my fairies down on the front.
Ok, I stared at my laptop for about 15 minutes trying to think of something to talk about and I've got nothing. so I'm going to leave this here and go make a card!
I'll be back tomorrow, have a great day!
