(2017 c39) Poinsettia Christmas Shaker



Peaceful Poinsettias by Taylored Expressions were stamped with Versamark and Heat embossed with Gold EP.  Then I masked with Art Masking Fluid by Windsor & Newton.


 For the background I watered down Color Burst Liquid Metals by Ken Oliver and spattered several colors.

For the shaker portion I got my inspiration from What Would Kelly Make: Shaker Card, 7th in Series on Simon Says Stamp.

Next I peeled off the masking and colored the flowers with mixtures of the Metalic Mandarin Liquid Metal and Barn Door Distress Ink by Ranger.   The photo on the right shows a closeup of the frame I made by spinkeling Emerald Green Powdered Pigments called  Brusho Crystal Colors on watercolor paper and spread them with a wet brush.  After it was totally dry I brushed Golden’s Soft Gell Gloss Media over and then sprinkled very small sprinkles of the Emerald Green in a few areas and used sweeping strokes with a wide brush through the Media.  Dies used for the frame: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8    for the inside cutout, the outside frame is Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Journaling Card Dies From scrapyland.com.  I stamped Merry Christmas from the same Peaceful Poinsettias set used for the flowers onto a heat resistant 3M Transparency Film for Laser Copiers. Fun Foam was used to give depth for the beads in the shaker.
