Good morning folks! It's a bit noisy here today. The national grid are digging up right outside our house and drive (fabulous) so no naked flames around here with the delightful smell of gas about! I hope they are finished by the end of the week!
We have a new challenge for you over at Creative Inspirations this wk and our theme is "snow much fun", we are sponsored by the fab simon says stamp and I have made a xmas shaker card but can you spot my multitude of mistakes?!!!!
Mistake number 1 - I had to use a double layer of sticky foam to create enough space for my micro beads to move around however this has created some stickiness to the sides so some of my beads are stuck around the frame lol!
Mistake number 2 - I used fun flock on all the white fluffy bits of my image, however all the friction from the micro beads being shaken about has worn off the fun flock and stuck most of it to the inside of my acetate!!!
Mistake number 3 - I coloured the top part of her scarf in blue thinking it was part of her jacket when it should have been brown oops!
Now I have catalogued all my mistakes........ I followed the sketch over at sweet sunday sketches for my card and used papers from My minds eye holly jolly collection. My lace and flowers are wild orchids with a tulle flower from Kort & godt in there. My tag was a freebie digi download from a blog I got over a year ago so can't remember were, sorry! My cheesecloth is from stash.
My image is a darling digi from wee stamps coloured with prismas. I cut a frame and painted the edge with snowtex and added white micro beads to give a snowy shaker card effect.
