Oh, we have a lovely Spring mood board to share with you today! What fabulous inspiration for the Dazzling Diva challenge:
And here's my take on it:
Today, I've provided a step-out tutorial so you can see exactly how this came together:
Cut a card base to a finished size of 4.25" x 5.5"
Cut the frame from the same color card stock
Stamp raindrop image on the card front in gray
Color with a Distress Marker, paintbrush, and water
Die cut clouds, lightning bolts, and sequins in craft metal
Die cut more sequins in vellum
Stamp sentiment in black
Cut front of shaker card from transparency
Adhere it to the back of the frame
Add foam adhesive to the back of the frame
Use temporary adhesive to keep card front from popping up
Place sequins on the middle of the card front
Add the metal die cuts to the front of the shaker frame with Ranger Glossy Accents.
Place the shaker frame on top of the card base, remove your temporary adhesive and done!
Here's a close up of the sequins in the shaker card:
This metal is SO versatile...
Here's what I used:
Paper: Neenah Solar White and vellum
Ink: Ranger Jet Black and Watering Can Archival
Stamps: Designs by Ryn Hanging Droplet set, Lil' Inker Designs (Katie Vaz) Dance in the Rain
All the other stuff: Big Shot Pro, MFT die-namics Stitched Rectangle frames, Lil' Inker Cut It Out Clouds and Accessories die set, We R Memory Keepers Confetti shaped die, paint brush, Broken China Distress Marker, foam adhesive, Ranger Glossy Accents, temporary adhesive
And, of course, Add a Little Dazzle Craft metal:
