Happy Bellarific Friday! (Or Sunday, lol!) It's been a crazy week at work so I finally have a few quiet moments to upload my card for this week's challenge. The theme was FRIENDSHIP and I knew just what stamp I wanted to use...
When I first saw this stamp CLOSEUPS "CLINK" I felt it was begging to be a shaker card. I started by coloring the image with Copics. Once that was complete, I used an exacto knife to carefully cut out the portion of the glasses where the liquid was and then backed that area with a piece of acetate to create my shaker windows. I next grabbed some foam tape and built up my shaker areas. I used a double layer of foam tape since I knew I was using seed beads and those shake better with a bit more room.
One of my favorite adult beverages is a Moscato Wine Spritzer so that's what I chose to recreate. I used a peachy yellow color in the background of the shaker window and covered it in the beautiful Pink Champagne Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. It's so sparkly in person and when I added the seed beads it looked just like the refreshing spritzer!
For the rest of the card, I chose some pretty teal papers and created two frames around my shaker window. I heat embossed the sentiment in white and adhered it to the top of frame. For my finishing touches, I added glossy accents & Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to some of jewelry. I then used Nuvo Jewel Drops in Grey Mist on the bracelets to make them look a bit more like sterling silver. I'm loving the new jewel drops because they dry translucent with just a hint of color. If you haven't tried them, I highly recommend them!
