(2020 c013) Valentine Shaker


Background created on watercolor paper by spritzing with water then sprinkling Fushcia & Merlot Color Burst by Ken Oliver and spritzing again to move the colors. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAfter drying I applied colors on a piece of clear packaging and then smushed  around the background to get more depth and more intense colors.

I cut the heart from the center with my NEW die set:  Wonky Wavy Stitched Hearts by Kat Scrappiness .  Then placed a piece of Re-Purposed clear packaging for the shaker window.  I cut the smaller heart out of the one I removed for the shaker space and backed with fun foam and inserted in the center and added silver beads & iridescent sequins.  The sentiments on the inside were stamped and cut with Big Scripty Words from Lawn Fawn.

Sentiments: my NEW set Say It – Happy Crafting Dies by Technique Tuesdays ,  my OLD set Hero Arts DI179 Valentine & Three Hearts Fancy Dies.
