* Winter Stag in Snow Shaker Card


I have a shaker card to share today. I used stamps and stencils from Inkylicious.

First I used a circle stencil to make the inky background from Distress Oxide inks. I spritzed it with water to blot out some colour to resemble snowfall and I added some white Posca paint pen dots. I used the Mountain/Valley stencil with some grey Memento ink to create snow mounds on the ground and I stamped the Tall Pine Trees in Ranger Black Archival ink. The Silhouette Stag was heat embossed with black powder.
I secured the inky circle onto a piece of embossed white card and built up the shaker element by die cutting a scalloped circle inside a scalloped circle and repeating until I had the depth I required (about 8 - 10 pieces of card). The glitter and stars were placed in onto the image and the acetate secured in place with die cut white glitter card. I matted the shaker onto blue mirror card and popped it onto a 6 x 6 inch card base.

That's all for today!

Thanks for stopping by.
